The genus carnation (Dianthus) is very popular, with about 338 species spread mainly in the temperate areas of the northern hemisphere. Its name derives from the composition of the ancient Greek words Διός Dios (“Zeus”) and ἀνθός anthos (“flower”), meaning the flower of God (Zeus). In the Middle Ages, it was the symbol of constant love, of marriage. Its English name of Latin origin – carnation – also refers to admiration, love, gratitude.
