Garden Stripe Carnation is a half-hardy biennial prized for its long bloom season. Large flowers with lovely spicy, clove-like fragrance bloom in many shades of crimson, red, rose, pink, yellow, and white. Carnations grown in groups make a striking attraction in gardens. For early blooms, start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost.  Thin or transplant when 15-25 cm tall. This tender perennial can overwinter in milder climates. To overwinter in Zone 3b to 4a cover with a thick layer of mulch but remove mulch in early spring.

One of the garden favourites.  Harvest early spent blossom head by cutting stem near the ground and hang dry with a paper bag tied around the stem to catch seeds that may drop.

Fall Planting: Sow seeds in late fall and cover lightly with compost, then mulch (remove mulch in spring)

Grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature, then harden off and transplant to a sunny site in the garden after the danger of the frost has passed. Space plants 30 cm apart in the garden.
