DIANTHUS – Maiden Pink

$2.95

Perennial with sweetly scented blooms

The Maiden Pink is a cute, mat-forming perennial that will give you much pleasure in the garden. The delicately scented blooms may be relatively small, but they really draw the eye. You're likely to find that your Maiden Pinks come in several shades of pink, and you may even get the occasional white-flowering or speckle-bloomed plant. This no-fuss beauty tolerates drought and poor soils well. Your only task will be the occasional dead-heading to encourage more blooms.
