Dianthus arenarius blooms in mid summer with pure white, fringed flowers on compact mounds of narrow, blue-green leaves. The flowers are lightly fragrant. Dianthus arenarius is a good plant for the rock garden or the front of the border. It's one of my favorite dianthus because it goes with everything. It looks especially nice with deeply colored flowers like Geum 'Blazing Sunset', which blooms at the same time. Also known as Sand Pink. Drought tolerant. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 3-8.
