Create a palette of colors in your garden with scarlet, purple, pink, white, yellow, and bicolored flowers combined with elegant, blue-green foliage. Butterflies enjoy their nectar. Excellent cut or dried flower; one flower per stem. The mild-clove-flavored petals make a colorful garnish to salads, desserts, and cold drinks. (The flower's central disk, while edible, can be bitter.)

Carnations!

These were among my experiments this year, and have done very well inn an extremely hot and windy summer. Currently they have lots of buds, but none are open quite yet. I am hoping they have the spicy fragrance I remember from childhood. I will be ordering them again
