Dianthus Family (Dianthus spp.)

These lovely little flowers can come in pinks, whites, and reds, and some bi-colors. They can be short or tall, depending on the species, which makes them ideal for many areas of your garden. They have beautiful blooms that will keep coming back if the spent blooms are removed or deadheaded. Many of the flowers are scented and are long lived in flower arrangements. These plants are so diverse and charming you will want many growing in your gardens.
