Question: Are carnations considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Botanists classify carnations as dicots.
Why Are Carnations Considered Dicots?
Carnations are classified as dicots because they have more than one seed leaf. Like many flowering plants, when a carnation sprouts, its seed pod splits in half, and a new stem emerges with two leaves. These two leaves define it as a dicot rather than a monocot.
