Carnations debuted as a cultivated flower over 2,000 years ago. While it is known to be grown primarily in the Asia and European areas of the globe, Theophrastus of Ancient Greece had an interest in this flower and described it as dianthis due to its divine texture and overall beauty. Ancient Greece had derived the term carnation from the term coronation and was often found and used in crowns and other ceremonial occasions with flower and leaf garlands.
The tuberose is a night-blooming plant thought to be native to Mexico. It has been cultivated in Hawaii for many years now and has become a very popular lei making flower here. Its scent is described as a complex, exotic, sweet floral.
