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: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    One of the most popular varieties of pink, and also hailed as one of the longest flowering. 'Gran's Favourite' is a 'laced' variety, which means the scented flowers are made up of two colours - with a contrasting centre and edge to the petals. This one has ruffled white petals with a splotch of deep purple-red in the centre and edge. It is sturdy and compact, and is best planted towards the front of a perennial border or rock garden - or in a pot.

  • 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.

Hi, so I got these Dianthus Grans Favourite now in December. They are 9 cms plugs, question is will they survive outside if planted in a container, or should I keep them indoors. Perhaps I should ave waited till spring to order, but now they are here, what should I do with them for winter? Thanks.

The plants we sell will be around 1-2 years old in a 9cm pot, and as they are fully hardy, then should be planted and kept outside throughout the winter.
