These Swiss Hanging Carnations work particularly well in a large pot or hanging basket. Use a large pot with holes in the base. Cover the bottom with a layer of potsherds or hydro granules. Put potting compost in the pot and mix in a little sharp sand and lime to produce an even richer blooming. Plant the Swiss Hanging Carnations at the appropriate depth in the hole. Fill with compost and press firmly. Immediately water after planting. The best place to hang these carnations is an area with complete sunshine or partial shade.

Hanging Carnations Mixed

The exuberant Swiss Hanging Carnations look fantastic in a hanging basket when combined with other species. Create a charming blend with Dianthus caryophyllus, Llavea Cuphea 'Tiny Mice' and Pelargonium 'Mrs. Pollock'.


Remove the dead flowers regularly to encourage a prolonged flowering. For an extra rich bloom add fertilizer to the water when watering in the summer. Swiss hanging carnations will flower abundantly from spring until early autumn. Carnations tolerate drought reasonably well and do not like too much moisture around the roots.


Dianthus caryophyllus is a very popular cut flower and will look great in a small bouquet. Cut the flowers early in the morning and put them in water with some cut flower food. Now you can enjoy the wonderful fragrance in your home! Special varieties with long stems are grown for the florists.
