Carnations were cultivated over 2,000 years ago. Modern varieties were
developed first in France in 1840, and further work was done in the United
States in 1855.
The name for carnation is derived from the Latin term "carnatio," meaning fleshiness. "Caryophyllus" means pink and refers to the color of the blooms of the original wild species.
