(Dwarf Pineleaf Garden Pink)
100 seeds $3.50
Dianthus pinifolius is an intriguing perennial that forms small mounds of grass-like leaves with narrow stems of clustered, crimson-red flowers. The tiny, lightly fragrant flowers attract butterflies. Dianthus pinifolius blooms in late spring to early summer, adding a touch of airy grace to the rock garden. It is surprisingly tough, tolerating drought and poor soil. I grow it along the edge of the driveway.
Dianthus pinifolius is native to Turkey. Also known as Dwarf Pineleaf Garden Pink. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 4-8.
