Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Helen'( Allwoodii Alpinus Group)
Alpine Pink, Helen Alpine Pink
Plants in the Dianthus Allwoodii group are compact, semi-evergreen, cushion-forming perennials resulting from crossing Dianthus plumarius (cottage pink) with perpetual-flowering carnations. The cultivar 'Helen' bears many clove-scented, ruffled, double, deep-salmon-pink flowers in late spring and early summer above mounds of grassy, blue-green leaves. Sporadic rebloom may occur in summer and early fall.
Preferring full sun and well-drained, neutral soil, this pink is well suited to rock gardens, border fronts, or containers. It needs division every 2 or 3 years to maintain its vigor.
