Dianthus plants, also known as carnations, pinks and sweet Williams, fill gardens with their delightful fragrance. Try growing some of the more unusual types - our range includes green-flowered varieties, as well as the more traditional favourites.
Dianthus 'Odessa Amy'
This tough garden variety is one of the best performers we've seen in both field and container trials. These compact carnation plants make up for their lack of height with an impressive display of perfumed blooms. Carnation 'Odessa Amy' really puts on a heavy flowering display, expect 30 blooms on each plant at any one time. Not only does it bring vivid colours to your patio and table top containers, you'll also be rewarded with a warm spicy fragrance - something that is missing from many other modern bred varieties in the search for stronger colours. The short stature of 'Odessa Amy' makes it a perfect choice for adding colour to the front of borders, and this cute carnation won't look out of place in rock garden plantings either. Height 20cm (8"). Spread 25cm (10").
