Friday Flowers: Dianthus

Every now and then you may run across a wedding that has a little fuzzy (who remembers koosh balls?) green flower either in the bouquets or centerpieces. If you’ve wondered what that is, today’s Friday Flowers is for you! It’s called dianthus (or green trick carnation) and is most certainly a unique addition to any arrangement. Since it somewhat resembles moss, it can be used in more rustic, woodsy weddings, but looks just as good when mixed with elegant white peonies, callas, or hydrangea! Check them out and let us know what you think!
