Dianthus spiculifolius

Dianthus spiculifolius
Family caryophyllaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6)
Flowers white or pink, marked with burgundy (spring-summer)
Size 8"
Light sun

Low-growing pink from the Carpathian mountains. Often used in rock gardens, where the tufts formed by its blue-green linear leaves can be shown off to great effect. The fragrant, fringed flowers are held above the foliage.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
