Carnation Chabaud Orange

Carnation (Dianthus Caryophyllus Chabaud Orange) - Enjoy this incredible beauty by starting Carnation seeds indoors in the early spring. The Dianthus Caryophyllus Chabaud series are tall and perfect for floral arrangements. The Carnation flowers also dry and preserve well. This Dianthus orange variety is bi-colored bringing both orange and cream together to create a lovely sherbet-like appearance. This Carnation seed produces double, beautifully scented, fringed flowers that grow as a perennial in frost free zones. Carnation flowers can grow as annuals where winters are cold. Grow carnation flower seeds in borders, planters, cottage gardens and rock gardens.

For Carnation flowers the first year, start Dianthus seeds indoors 10 - 12 weeks before the last frost, planting 2 - 3 flower seeds per pot or cell. Cover the Carnation seeds with no more than 1/16 inch of soil and keep the seeds moist until germination. Move seedlings to a cool, bright place to continue growing, then harden the Carnation plants off in the garden a week or two before the last frost. Where winters are mild, Carnation seeds may be planted outdoors spring through early fall. Removing spent flowers encourages continued blooming.
