One of the most fragrant garden carnations. The double, 2-inch red blooms have a spicy fragrance. This plant produces abundant flowers throughout the growing season and well into the fall in all areas of the country. The blossoms are fully double, a gorgeous bright red and a super clove perfume. Mature plants, on average, will grow to 12 to 14 inches tall and are very bushy. This variety is classified as a half-hardy annual
