Plant Details

Strongly scented lavender-pink fringed flowers above slender foliage.

Introduced in 1764 from Montpelier where it grows in arid grasslands, woodlands and heathlands.

We recommend planting it close to the house, or a path, where you will benefit from the very strong scent.

Syn: Dianthus Sternbergii.

Height: 30cm

Common name(s): Fringed Pink; Gillyflower

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.
