light pink carnations - possible alternative to peonies
Miniature carnations are a gardener's favorite, especially known for their beautiful, romantic blooms. Otherwise known as dianthus caryophyllus, these flowers bloom from early spring until frost and their silver gray-green foliage stays during the drab months of winter, enticing the thoughts of spring and summer. For truly continuous blooms, expelling dead blooms is a must for long-lasting blooming perennials to die for. #beautifulflowersromantic
Dianthus caryophyllus, carnation or clove pink, is a species of Dianthus. It is probably native to the Mediterranean region but its exact range is unknown due to extensive cultivation for the last years.
