A hardy traditional cottage garden plant this dianthus hybrid is a unique heirloom variety that has been rescued from extinction. Plants are covered with clusters of deeply fringed flowers that emit a strong perfumed fragrance similar to carnation, jasmine, and rose scents. The large flowers come in a mixture of lilac, rose, carmine, white and purple.
Perfect for old-fashioned cut flowers, pots, and containers. An ideal choice for poor soils and hot, sunny positions.

Trim back lightly after the first flowering. Plants can be divided into early spring or autumn.
