(=‘WP15 MOW08’) Also known as Border Pinks. The DEVON COTTAGE™ series of pinks are midsized in habit, offering spicy, fragrant blooms from spring right into the autumn, over a low mound of grassy blue-green leaves.

Attractive to butterflies. Plants require good drainage and are an excellent choice for hot dry sites or gravelly soils. Combines beautifully with other low alpine plants. Evergreen.
