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.

This unusual and attractive species of Dianthus is rare in 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
