Flower Award Winner

This is one of the most fragrant garden carnations. The spicy fragrance will almost fill a room when the double,
2-inch blooms are cut and used in a bouquet. 'Can Can Scarlet' is heat tolerant, producing flowers throughout the growing season into the fall. This variety is perfect for a cut flower garden, the grey-green foliagecontrasts with the bright scarlet blooms. Mature plants will reach 12 to 14 inches tall. Flowering pot plants will be available from garden centers in the spring or fall.
