Peacock-eyed pink is an adorable little plant for the rock garden. It forms a neat cushion of narrow leaves topped with relatively large, bright pink flowers in early summer.
Because it is extremely slow growing, Dianthus pavonius is only recommended for experienced rock gardeners. Give it a spot in full sun with well-drained soil where it won't be overtaken by more vigorous plants. Nice in troughs. Also known as Dianthus neglectus. Hardy in zones 4-8.
