I love the deep, rich colours of these 3 varieties of garden pinks which are my long-standing favourites for ease and length of flowering.
We use pinks as edible flowers for puddings and salads and for deliciously, heady scented vases and like all the pink family, they last well over a week in the vase.
This collection includes 3 varietes of pinks:
- Dianthus ‘Laced Monarch’ - My favourite with excellent sturdy plants
- Dianthus 'Devon Wizard’ * - A deep pink with an intense clovey fragrance.
- Dianthus ‘Devon’s General’ - One of the brand new and best varieties for flower production and scent
