A selection of the Border Pinks, a group of Dianthus that are a favourite for planting in rock gardens or using as a border edging. This new outstanding variety from Japan forms a clump of grassy, grey-green foliage, with a long summer display of fragrant, lilac-pink blooms. Well suited for edging and in the rock garden. Shear plants back lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact habit. Plants require good drainage and are an excellent choice for hot dry sites or gravelly soils. Combines beautifully with other low alpine plants. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen. “Kaori” means fragrance in Japanese.
