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.
Plant type: annual Height: 24-30” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 130-140 days Plant spacing: 6-9” Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 10-12 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Harvest when 1-2 flowers on the spray are open. With flower food, expect a vase life of up to 2 weeks.
