Carnation is Common Name and Dianthus Botanical name. This may be D. caryophyllus

I asked you about Carnation and Dianthus because when I got these plants from the local nursery one was labelled Carnation and the other Dianthus and so the confusion. Probably they were trying to teach me both the common and the Botanical name ha ha I am attaching the picture of both.


It should be Dianthus chinensis L.  as per images herein.
