Dianthus

Garden Pinks

The subtleties of the Dianthus we’ve selected will take you back to Roman times, when this plant was regarded as divine, ‘Jove’s Flower’. Throughout history, clove-scented Dianthus have been cultivated for their fragrance and essential oils. Easy to grow and vigorous in well drained soil, Dianthus, with neat mounds of linear blue, green or gray-green foliage, are an ageless addition to any garden, especially suited to timeworn habitats such as the rockery, walls or stone pathways.

Dianthus ‘Unique’ full sun

A spectacular 17th-century cultivar, this handsome compact Dianthus is one of the rarest of old pinks. Stunning, frilled single flowers are so richly colored they look like velvet, the pink center set off by glowing red and dark crimson markings and deep pink feathering. The look is matched only by the delicious, almost intoxicating, clove fragrance. For an opulent blend of colors, plant with Lobelia ‘La Fresco’ and Schizachyrium.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 8" high x 14" wide; hardy to zone 5.
