Dianthus ‘Waterloo Sunset’ (Dianthus x allwoodii)
These new ‘garden pinks’ are an effervescent cerise with a port wine eye. The fragrant, double blooms are long-lasting and the plants are compact and well
suited to pots. Dianthus like full to part sun and grow to a height of 40cm by 60cm wide. Encourage further flower flushes by removing dead flower
heads and boost with slow-release fertiliser annually in spring.
Bonus: the flowers cut well and look pretty in a vase.
