Similar to Dianthus 'Bath's Pink', but with single shockingly magenta-pink flowers that are nearly fringed on the end. The flowers are spicy, clove-scented and face upwards for maximum color impact. Butterflies are attracted to the flowers, which also make excellent cut and dried flowers. The plants bloom heavily from late spring into early summer, intermittently throughout summer, and often reblooms in fall; particularly when deadheaded consistently. Tight mats of silvery -blue, needle-like, 4-6 in. tall, evergreen foliage lay below the 7-8 in. tall flower masses. Grows best in loose, well drained, slightly alkaline soil in full sun. Fewer flowers will be produced when grown in hot, dry areas. Use as a contrast in the rock garden, in container, or as a small border front. Good edging plant; space 12 in. apart.
