Dianthus gratianopolitanus ‘Tiny Rubies’
This selection of Dianthus has very fine foliage that will form tight clumps, making it a great edging plant. The low cushions of olive-green leaves don't need to be clipped to make the soft texture, it is just the way it grows. If planted 6 inches apart, they will grow together making a nice edging. The fragrant pink double flowers are rose-pink and come out in masses in late spring. This one is drought tolerant once established. Useful to clip back after flowering has finished to keep compact. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen. Hardy to zone 3.
