‘Elizabethan Pink’

Dianthus 'Elizabethan Pink'

Scentsational! I love this new-for-us, old fashioned & surprisingly large flowered Dianthus! Right out of a 16th century tapestry, the 2” blooms form rounded petals edged in deepest maroon, almost black color. Strongly clove-scented, they’re held on upright 12-18” branching stems above silvery, tufted, matting foliage to 15” across. Choice as a cut flower, or drop them in mulled wine or cider – they’re edible! EASY, as long as you provide decent drainage on the edge of a bed or in a container. Give a 1” side-dress of compost once or twice a year for vigorous bloom.
