(=‘Devon Starling’) A selection of the Border Pinks or Cheddar Pinks, a group of Dianthus that are a favourite for planting in rock gardens or using as a border edging. This British introduction forms a mound of grassy grey-green foliage, with an early summer display of fragrant magenta-pink single flowers with a plum eyezone. Shear plants back lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact habit. Inclined to repeat flower in the fall. Plants require good drainage and are an excellent choice for hot dry sites or gravelly soils. Combines beautifully with other low alpine or edging plants. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen. One of the Star™ Single collection from Whetman® Pinks in Devon, UK. USPP#16431: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
