Cottage Pinks Rainbow Loveliness HEIRLOOM Seeds

Dianthus hybr.

Item #1280

Perennial. This plant will surely attract attention. In late spring, the lovely, blue-green mound of leaves is covered with masses of heavily fringed blooms creating a rainbow of color in white, pink, lilac, and rose, that butterflies can't resist. Some flowers may be bicolored or have contrasting eyes or rings. The sweet, flowery scent is often compared to jasmine. A wonderful choice for an old-fashioned cottage garden, cutting garden, or perennial border. Perennial in USDA zones 3–9.
