Raise your hand if you've never seen or heard of Trick Dianthus. Don't be shy; my hand's raised to the heavens too! That's because it was cultivated by Scandinavian floral company, Hilverda de Boer and wasn't available until 2011--just a few years ago!
Clumped together, you'd swear this was grass or something from a coral sea bed. In reality, Green Trick Dianthus, is actually TWO flowers: Green Trick Dianthus and Green Ball. While both are from the same chute, growing conditions determine the outcome of the flower. Green Ball is much more hair-like and larger than Green Trick Dianthus.
If you're not a fan of carnations, like me, then you'll also be surprised to know that this flower is a VERY CLOSE relative of the carnation--more than any other flower species.
Is this a flower that you'd like to see more of? Would you consider this for your Spring wedding coming up? Let me know in the comments below! Also, be sure to click here and follow my floral collection.
