    A spreading, mat-forming pink that produces bright green leaves and single, flat, mauve flowers in late summer. Each flower has five petals with serrated edges and a maroon stripe around the centre. Although short-lived, this dianthus is long-flowering so puts on a good show from midsummer onwards. Traditionally associated with rock gardens, it looks equally at home at the front of a sunny border or alpine bed. It is also effective in gravel gardens.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead to prolong flowering. Deadheading regularly will help encourage more flowers and keep the plant looking tidy.
