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

    Only recently introduced, but already turning heads, this compact dianthus can produce an abundance of scented flowers over a really long time - and these are usually followed up by a second flush! The flowers themselves are a soft apricot pink in the spring, but as the summer progresses they develop a darker red eye which offers a beautiful contrast. Delivered in flower they are perfect for instant colour in alpine beds and pots where they will add lashings of colour. After the diplay has finished you can plant them out into a sunny border where they will go on to flower the following year.

  • 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.
