Believed to be a very old pink which came to us from someone who purchased it at a nursery 2005. That nursery was given it by a lady who's father had grown it for many years. We have not seen or heard of it anywhere else and the nursery in question no longer sells Dianthus so we are very pleased to be able to save it for cultivation.
Long stems bear very small, fully double white flowers, which are exquisitely scented.
A very strong grower, which we are reliably informed, will even do well in clay soil.
Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower
