Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Mountain Mist'
Cheddar Pink, Mountain Mist Cheddar Pink
The fragrant, frilly, smoky pink flowers of ‘Mountain Mist’ are complimented by its bluish gray-green foliage. It has an old-fashioned look ideal for cottage gardens or colorful rock gardens.
This hybrid perennial forms a dense spreading mound of waxy, almost grassy, leaves. From late spring to midsummer, it becomes covered with lots of fine branched stems with semi-double soft smoky pink flowers with jagged pinked edges. Deadheading will keep the plants looking clean. 'Mountain Mist' may rebloom in early autumn.
Grow Dianthus in full to partial sun and any well-drained garden soil with a neutral to alkaline pH. They are low-maintenance and have few pest and disease problems, though overwatering can cause crown and root rot. Enjoy this in a trough or rock garden, along border edges or any garden space with highly drained soil and good light. Its blooms also make long-lasting cutflowers.
