Dianthus ‘Whatfield Magenta’


Cheddar Pinks

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.180.710


Cheddar Pinks have been popular in gardens for centuries. This selection forms a low cushion of grassy silvery-blue foliage. The sweetly-scented single flowers are hot magenta-pink, with a rose throat. 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.
