Wordless Wednesday Poor Mans Rose

Poor Mans Rose

Someone told me years ago that the carnation is “the poor mans rose”. Truth be told I prefer a carnation over a rose. The fragrance is wonderful and they last for two weeks after cutting.

See you at the hop tomorrow!

    I love carnations! They are beautiful, come in so many wonderful colors, and they last quite a long time.

    Such a gorgeous color but when I first read your title Poor Man’s Roses reminded me and brought back memories of the song by Patsy Cline – ‘Poor Man’s Roses’.

    Just gorgeous! Wish my flower garden would sprout something this lovely!

    Is this poor mans rose called ( Lisianthus ) ? and where can you order the seeds ?

    1. Katherines Corner

      Hello Rose, it is a dianthus. I imagine seeds are available at most garden shops. :-)
