    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, 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.
