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 ‘Nancy Lindsay’ full sun

Liberated from the namesakes’ garden following her demise, this age-old British treasure offers a lavish pageantry. Pearly-eyed, deep carmine petals, each donning pinkish white fringes, two irregular snowy flecks and minute, magenta speckles that glisten in the morning light. Nancy’s dainty flowers dress up her tidy, glaucous blue tussock and fill the air with an irresistible heavenly perfume.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 9" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
