Dianthus Star™ Single ‘Neon Star’

Whetman Star Pinks

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.180.800

This collection is considered the best in Dianthus genetics with attractive, mounding foliage, excellent vigour and heat tolerance. Pinks are especially popular as edging plants or in the rock garden. This selection forms a low, grassy cushion of grey-green leaves, bearing upright stems of deep magenta-pink single flowers with a spicy clove fragrance. Drought tolerant once established. Shear lightly after blooming. Flowers may be attractive to butterflies. Evergreen. This selection from the Star™ Single series from Whetman® Pinks in Devon, UK may well prove to be hardy to Zone 3 or colder, but excellent drainage is essential.
