Carnations are a species of dianthus which comes from the greek words for divine (dios) and flower (anthos). The carnation has been around for over 2,000 years, originating in Asia and Europe. Theres around 300 species of carnations and come in many different colors. The carnation became the official flower of Mother's Day because Anna Jarvis, the founder of the Mother's Day holiday, said that carnations were her mother's favorite flower. After her mother's death, she held a memorial with 500 white carnations. In the Christian religion, it's believed that carnations appeared when the Virgin Mary shed tears when Jesus carried the cross. This is another way that carnations represent a mother's love.
