Dianthus 'Purple Rain'
There are some genetically modified varieties out there with a blue tinge to the petals but Dianthus 'Purple Rain' is the closest to a natural blue carnation that we’ve seen. This modern hardy Carnation has an exquisite fragrance that is almost as alluring as its colour. Undemanding and well behaved, this clump forming perennial is perfect for the front of borders and makes a lovely cut flower too. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 30cm (12").
