Dianthus hybrida Mountain Frost™ Pink Twinkle

Hybrid Cheddar Pinks

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.181.700

(=‘KonD1060K3’) Cousins to the carnation, Cheddar Pinks have been grown in gardens for centuries. Plants form a clump of leaves, bearing masses of heavily fringed, fragrant flowers. This selection from the Mountain Frost™ collection features single, bright pink flowers with cherry-red circle-eye over silvery-grey foliage. Drought tolerant once established. Remove old flower stems to keep the plants looking fresh and tidy, and to encourage more flowers. Not always easy to divide, but this can be attempted in early spring or fall. Evergreen. USPP#30105: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
