Carnations are my favorite cut flower since they are not common in gardens yet very cheap cut. They also keep nice for about 3 days. They also come in quite a few different color combinations. Roses are also easy to buy as cut flowers, but cut-roses seem to be inferior in quality compared to those I can find growing in parks or sidewalks. Here are the first two in my pink centered carnation flower series. The centers are pink and the rest is white.
