Plant Details

We are very pleased to have found this now very rare Mule Pink, which dates from around 1840.

Small double, salmon pink flowers are produced in branching clusters and when happy the plant will spread over a wide area, throwing up many sprays of flowers from June into autumn.

Height: 20cm

Common name(s): Mule Pink; Gillyflower

The Mule Pinks are a cross between a carnation and a Sweet William, resulting in larger flowers than typical Dianthus. 

 

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
