Zone Range: 03-09
Preferred Climate: Temperate
Harvest Date: Tuesday 23 September, 2014
Seed count: 25-30

Description:
This wild species is unique in that it is the only wild species of Dianthus to have yellow blooms. The flower stems, from 25-35cm (1-1.5ft) in height produce tight clusters of buds that open in succesion though much of the summer. The flowers are relatively small, at 2cm (1in) in diameter.

Notes:
This unusual and attractive species of Dianthus is rare in cultivation.

Cultivation:
Sow seed in containers in a coldframe in autumn or spring. If sowing in spring it is possible that cold stratification could help improve germination, which can be erratic. Grow in well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil in full sun. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.

Harvest Date: Tuesday 23 September, 2014
