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 selection forms a mound of grassy blue-green foliage, with an early summer display of fragrant single flowers, deep purple-red with pale-pink to white blotches and a narrow picotee margin. Great for edging or in the rock garden. Evergreen. One of the Star™ Single collection from Whetman® Pinks in Devon, UK. Shear plants back lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact habit. 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. USPP#13029, CPBR#2750: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
