Small head carnation but long enough to cut

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a carnation with a 1" bloom that is about 12" tall that would be good for cutting? My rep. suggested Devon Cottage series. I thought they would be different enough people would like them in bouquets.

Eden Brothers sells some very pretty carnations. You might look for seed on their site.

I bought a nice mix from either Germania or Geoseed a few years ago. Last year was their 2nd year and they produced very nicely. The stems were at least 12" some maybe as much as 18" and they were declidously fragrant. Just look through their selection and find one that sounds right for outdoor growth and cutting.
