Cheddar Pinks have been popular in gardens for centuries. This selection forms a low cushion of grassy steel-blue foliage. The sweetly-scented single flowers are soft pink with a darker eye, and have delicately fringed petals. One of the best for tolerating summer heat and humidity. Excellent addition to the sunny rock garden, alpine trough or for edging. Plants should be trimmed lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact mound. Not always easy to divide, but this can be attempted in spring or early fall. Evergreen.
