History of carnations

Carnations, which were first discovered during the times of ancient Greece and Rome, are among the earliest cultivated flowers in existence. These fresh flowers were utilised for their beauty and fragrance and became popular in vinegar, sauces, beer and spiced wine. 

In the middle ages, carnations were used as garlands for celebrations. They became common in medical practice and were also popular garden flowers in Europe. Carnations are now considered the official wedding anniversary flowers for the first year of marriage because their lively and full bloom represents young love. 

Why is Sagittarius a carnation?

Born between November 23 - December 21, Sagittarians are ruled by the biggest planet in the solar system, Jupiter, making them the biggest personalities. They are lovers of freedom and intensely independent. Likewise, the carnation plant is easy to care for and does a lot of the work on its own. 

Sagittarians are full of passion and energy, making them the ultimate fire signs. Similarly, carnations come in a variety of vibrant and fiery colours, with jagged petals that resemble flickering flames.
