Red and pink Tyrolean Hanging Carnations are great for large flower pots or hanging baskets. Choose a large pot with holes in the base, cover the bottom with potsherds or hydro grains. Put some potting compost in the pot and mix in a little sharp sand and lime, which will encourage an even richer flowering. Plant the root ball at the correct depth, fill with compost and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. The best place for the pot is in full sun.

Hanging Carnations Mixed

The exuberant flowering Tyrolean hanging carnations blend well in a large hanging basket when combined with other varieties. Create a charming display by mixing them with Dianthus Caryophyllus, mouse ears (Cuphea llavea 'Tiny Mice') and variegated geranium (Pelargonium 'Mrs. Pollock).


Remove the dead flowers of the hanging carnations on a regular basis to prolong the flowering period. Add a feed when watering on a regular basis during the summer for an extra rich bloom. The flowers experience a rich bloom from spring until late summer. Carnations are reasonably drought resistant and do not like too much moisture around the root ball. This plant is grown as an annual.


Dianthus caryophyllus is indeed a very popular cut flower. These short stemmed varieties are only suitable for small arrangements. For the florist, special long stemmed varieties are grown. Cut the flowers early in the morning and put into a vase with cut flower food. So you can also enjoy the floral scent indoors.
