One of the rarest old of the old pinks, reputed to come from the 17th century. Single frilled velvet flowers of dark carmine with fine brush marks of chocolate and pink of varying amounts. Very fragrant. Now very difficult to propagate, probably due to its age.
All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted 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.
