Carnations are flowers mostly associated with love, fascination, and distinction, but also with good luck. They are known both in the Tortallan and Emelanese Universes.
In the third century of the Human Era carnations were known in the Lower City of Corus as gillyflowers. Rosto the Piper used to give Rebakah Cooper carnations whenever something good or bad happened to her. She once wondered how he came to those flowers in the cold months, but realized that he, as the Rogue, could get to mage-grown carnations.
Carnations have magical uses in the Emelan Universe. Its oil strengthen and purifies.
