Question: Where can I order Dianthus caryophyllus type of carnations? I can only find the shor border type in catalogs. Years ago I grew this type and they were generally 3' tall.
Answer: Seeds of Dianthus caryophyllus are carried by Jackson & Morgan, Inc., PO Box 1308, Jackson, NJ 08527-0308. In their catalog you'll find 'Floristan Red' and 'Giant Chabaud Mixed', both growing 24" to 30" tall.
