What is Spray Carnation

Spray Carnation (Scientific name: Dianthus caryophyllus 'Spray type') is one of the horticultural varieties of the carnation (Carnation, Scientific name: Dianthus caryophyllus), a cold-tolerant perennial plant of the genus Nadesico, native to Southern Europe. In recent years, new varieties of carnation horticultural varieties have been produced by genetic recombination and are on the market.

Flower color is abundant, such as red, white, pink, purple, yellow.
