Dianthus ‘Inchmery’
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.

A study in delicacy, this fragrant shell pink double blossom harmonizes with the blues of Nepeta and Lavender, or with yellows. Hosted atop bluish tumps, the buds that appear in May are a joy in their own right, long and linear, revealing a deep maroon stripe around each base.

Blooms July–August.

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

Our favorite plant this week: What's not to love about this adorable Primula? Steeped in charm and easily grown, this hard-to-find old-fashioned Primrose promises to please with nearly evergreen foliage and a blooming season, extending from spring to fall. A plentiful showing of rose-like buds and splendid lilac-pink double flowers adorn broad textured spring green foliage that forms a generous long-lived clump. Bright shade, well-drained soil and above average moisture will ensure its success.
