Excerpt from Select Carnations, Picotees, Pinks

It is safe to say that the Carnation has been cultivated in this country for four hundred years, and during that period it has been continuously cared for by man, while during intermittent periods it has enjoyed a great wave of popularity; but at no stage of its history has it been more extensively cultivated in the four quarters of the globe than at present. Few flowers have undergone more extensive modification at the hands of the florist, and fewer have entered more deeply into the hearts of the people. During the past decade and a half its cultivation has extended by leaps and bounds, both in this country and in America. Indeed in these countries it is considered second only to the Rose in popular favour, and some enthusiasts are of opinion that it will presently be more popular even than that old time favourite. This seems but a repetition of the opinion of the father of floriculture, John Gerard, who in 1597 said of the Carnation that it "may be thought not inferior to the Rose in beauty, smell, and varietie."

Never were the sections, nor the varieties more numerous than at the present day. The sections which have come into marked prominence during the past decade and a half are border Carnations, yellow Carnations, and Picotees, American Carnations and Malmaisons, which are still in the full tide of ascendancy.
