    A dwarf form of the popular garden pink which forms neat hummocks of blue-grey foliage. These are studded with sprays of small, single flowers in brightest magenta for many weeks. Planted in a pot or on a sunny terrace, near to seating areas, their fragrant smell will perfume the air. Their tidy habit and evergreen foliage make this form a good subject for edging paths or steps.

  • Garden care: Dianthus should be trimmed back lightly after flowering to promote new basal growth. Prune more closely in spring as new shoots appear to maintain tidy shape.
