Buy Dianthus carthusianorum carthusian pink: Vibrant magenta flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • 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.

This plant was still putting up flowers until the frost in early February. Now it's looking a bit brown but, hopefully, new leaves will start to grow very soon.

Attractive plant

A very attractive and unusual plant although I think the guidance on plant height (0.4m) might be a little inaccurate - I planted three of these and they're currently over 1.1m tall in their first year.

Perfect and pretty

These look really pretty in the rockery - nice healthy plants that drew quite a lot of comments.

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.

A tad disappointed

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.
