Dianthus plumarius
Dianthus plumarius
Native Region: south, central and eastern Europe
Zone Range: 3-9
Preferred Climate: Temperate
Harvest Date: Tuesday 08 July, 2014
Seed count: 50-60

Mat-forming evergreen perennial with finely-toothed, grasslike gray-green leaves. Bears rosy-pink, scented, toothed flowers about an inch across from spring to summer. Height 12-16 inches; spread 24 inches. Classic plant for the cottage garden and makes an excellent cut flower. May also be used for border edging or in containers.

For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow from late winter to early summer 3mm (1/8in) deep in a good free draining seed compost. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14-21 days at 18-21C (65-70F). Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Later plant out 30cm (12in) apart into well drained soil preferably containing lime, in a sunny spot. Prefers neutral to alkaline soil with good drainage.
