Product Description

Carnation ‘Chabaud Benigna’
Dianthus caryophyllus

The clean white petals of ‘Benigna’ look like they were outlined with boysenberry colored ink. One of the most fragrant flowers we grow, this old fashioned carnation is best grown as an annual. These beauties bloom all summer long from an early sowing. The tall stems and extremely long vase life make them an ideal cut flower. Flowers are borne in sprays and smell like cloves.
