Dianthus ‘Whatfield Magenta’
Cheddar Pinks
Zone 2 to Zone 9
Plant Shapes: Cushion

Cheddar Pinks have been popular in gardens for centuries. This selection forms a low cushion of grassy silvery-blue foliage. The sweetly-scented single flowers are hot magenta-pink, with a rose throat. Excellent addition to the sunny rock garden, alpine trough or for edging. Plants should be trimmed lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact mound. Not always easy to divide, but this can be attempted in spring or early fall. Evergreen.
