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: 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.
Michael Perry says
"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!"
