Dianthus ‘Mendlesham Glow’
at Digging Dog

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 ‘Mendlesham Glow’ full sun

The lavish, richly pink, semidouble blossoms bred into this cultivar by Sue and Peter Russell burst forth almost continuously throughout its long blooming season. Particularly neat blue-green narrow foliage mounds nicely; show it off at the front of the border or, for a fragrant delight, plant with Lavandula ‘Richard Gray’.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 8" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
