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 steadfast 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.

Cultivated since the 1700s, ‘Inchmery’ is a study in delicacy. The buds that appear in May are a joy in their own right, long and linear, revealing a deep maroon stripe around each base. Cushioned by bluish green tumps, fragrant shell-pink double blossoms harmonize with the blues of Nepeta and Lavender, or with Helianthemum ‘Wisley Primrose’.

Blooms July–August
