Cheddar Pinks, Peppermint Star Pinks
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Worthy of top billing in just about any perennial border, Star Series dianthus draw applause with their multicolored, fragrant flowers displayed against compact mounds of handsome blue-green foliage. The fringed, intricately patterned, single flowers are white, pink, red, or purple with boldly contrasting markings. Flowering begins and is heaviest in late spring but may continue sporadically through summer if spent blooms are removed.
Like most pinks, Star Series dianthus like sun and well-drained, slightly alkaline soil. They offer higher vigor and disease resistance than many traditional cultivars of dianthus. Their compact size and bold color make them ideal choices for rock gardens, borders, or containers such as window boxes.
