Dianthus 'Crimson Rim'
This stunning hardy Carnation bucks the modern trend for flashy flower colours at the expense of their fragrance. Dianthus 'Crimson Rim' combines elegant pristine white blooms with a stylish raspberry edge and a wonderful rich clove fragrance. This clump forming perennial is undemanding and well behaved making it perfect for the front of borders. And with a such a free flowering habit you’ll have plenty of stems to spare for a vase indoors. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

"I absolutely love this new carnation; It has the antique fragrance of carnations from times gone by; BUT with a vigour and flowering performance equal to modern varieties. The perfect marriage!"
Dianthus Dash Magician
Summer Sweet Williams are one of the most innovative breeding results of recent years. No longer reserved for spring, these big, blousy flowerheads, can be cut for vase use or left on the plant to enjoy all summer. 'Dash Magician' is colour-changing too, the blooms evolve before your very eyes!More info
