Bred for beautifully scented flowers and excellent garden performance, Dianthus 'Key Lime Pie' (Pink) is an elegant evergreen perennial with masses of delightfully scented, pure white flowers adorned with unique apple green centers. Blooming in late spring with a repeat in summer and fall (with regular deadheading), the large single blossoms rise on short, sturdy stems above a low cushion of grassy, blue-green leaves. Easy to grow, and perfect for adding a splash of color in the garden, this Garden Pink is an excellent addition to the sunny rock garden, fabulous in containers and a luminous edger at the front of the border.

'Key Lime Pie' belongs to the award-winning American Pie Series of Garden Pinks from Whetman Pinks, which are noted for their spicy fragrance, compact habit and long bloom season.

* Grows up to 11 in. tall and wide (27 cm).

• Prefers full sun and enjoys neutral to alkaline, well-drained soils.

Extremely versatile, this Dianthus is ideal for rock gardens, border fronts, garden edging or containers.

Attracts bees and butterflies, but is ignored by deer and rabbits.

  • Deadhead to prolong flowering. Trim lightly after flowering to maintain a tight, compact mound.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
