Dianthus 'Diane' (Large Plant)
Garden Pinks are evergreen and will last for many years in the garden. Plants are tough, resilient and weatherproof, and love a position in sun, and can cope with neglect. Dianthus are particuarly useful in difficult areas such as slopes or dry gardens.
Pinks produce an endless supply of fragrant blooms over a long summer period; make sure you enjoy them indoors as cut flowers too. Dianthus 'Diane' is known for its rosy-pink, double flowers, with a rich clove scent. Height and Spread: 50cm (20").
Culinary note: Use the clove like tasting petals for adding to cakes, either for flavour or decorating, suitable for soups, salads and sauces too. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
