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: rich but well-drained, alkaline to neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A lovely little alpine, which is a native of the Balkans. The tall upright flower stems bear clusters of pinky-red flowers in late spring and summer. These bob happily above the long, bluish-green, semi-evergreen foliage. It is easy to grow and the bees and butterflies will love you for it.

  • Garden care: Dianthus should be trimmed back lightly after flowering to promote new basal growth. Prune more closely in spring, as new shoots emerge to maintain a tidy shape. To maintain healthy growth, it is important to make sure the plants are protected from excessive winter wet.
