  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A tall pink with small, single, magenta flowers above narrow, grassy green foliage. Hailing from the alpine meadows of central and southeast Europe with pretty pink flowers throughout the summer, it thrives in dry, sunny sites and alkaline soils. Try it among ornamental grasses, or to bring cheery summer colour to a meadow. Deadheading regularly will help encourage more flowers.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.

      Comments about Dianthus carthusianorum:

      Have grown this from seed and from seedlings. Very successful here with long flowering season. A bit leggy in shallow soil but actually very attractive in the breeze.

      Comments about Dianthus carthusianorum:

      Will be moving this plant to another area of the garden to see if it improves. This year it's struggled, only a few flowing stems, slugs seemed to like stripping the green so that the appearance is spoilt. Other dianthus do very well in my garden.
