As any lover of flowers will know, carnations are a delight in the world of botany. 

The carnation is, in fact, only one colorful delight in this long line of petaled wonders that have much symbolism as well as many brothers and sisters that will leave you absolutely awestruck. And while they do come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and colors, you’ll see why their family name is Pink! Found all across the globe, primarily in Europe and Asia, these 20 are amongst the most beautiful in the Dianthus genus and the illustrious family of Carnations. They will have you lost in a warm and wondrous haze of brightness and color!
