With the large number of varieties, identification of any one type is difficult. Flower petals are fringed giving the blooms a ragged look.
Garden Pinks have escaped to the wild and can be found on rocky outcrops and dry open areas in the north country. They are tolerant of long dry periods but best growth and flowering occurs with a slightly moist soil. Dianthus are fairly short lived and division every 2-3 years will keep them vigorous. Deadheading will extend flowering for a prolonged period.
Soil Type - Sandy, well drained, average to poor fertility
Height - Slender stems with narrow leaves up to 1.5 ft.
