We read further on the topic and discovered an interesting Christian legend depicting the first appearance of this flower on Earth at the same time as when Jesus carried the Cross. It was believed that wild carnations sprang up from where Mary's tears fell as she cried over her son's plight. This tale could also be a reason why the flower is chosen as the official Mother's Day bloom.
There are essentially three main types of carnation cultivars:
1) Large flowered variety - one large bloom per stem which are also commonly referred to as standard carnations.
2) Spray or mini carnations - 3 to 7 lateral blooms per stem.
3) Dwarf flowered variety - several small flowers on a single stem.
