DIANTHUS( Allwoodii Alpinus Group)
Plants in the Dianthus Allwoodii group are compact, semi-evergreen, cushion-forming perennials resulting from crossing Dianthus plumarius (cottage pink) with perpetual-flowering carnations. This cross produced a beautiful array of double flowers in shades of white, pink, and red. Tufts of narrow, gray-green leaves are almost hidden by masses of fragrant flowers in late spring and early summer. Deadheading will encourage sporadic rebloom in summer and early fall.
This dianthus does best in full sun and well-drained soils in any rock garden, border front, edging, or container.
