DIANTHUS plumarius 'Spring Beauty'
Clove Pinks, Cottage Pinks, Spring Beauty Pinks
The fragrant, single to semi-double blossoms of ‘Spring Beauty’ border pink add brilliance to the summer garden. Appearing in various shades of pink, rose, salmon and white, the fringed, spice-scented flowers of this seed-grown strain bloom from late spring to midsummer. They rise on slender stems from spreading, evergreen clumps of linear, blue-green leaves, and may attract small bees and butterflies.
Like most Border pinks, ‘Spring Beauty’ grows and flowers best in full to part sun and average, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Avoid overwatering and soggy conditions, as these may cause stem and root decay. Prompt removal of spent flower stems may encourage prolonged flowering. Plants may be divided every two to three years to maintain their vigor, and may politely self-sow if allowed to go to seed.
A classic staple of cottage gardens, this charming perennial is also at home in rock gardens or mixed beds and borders. It is particularly lovely when combined with peonies, roses, Siberian iris, and any other early summer-blooming perennial or shrub.
