Dianthus (Pinks)

Pinks have elegant, usually feathered and sometimes fragrant flowers in rich pink to lilac shades. The very broad genus Dianthus consists of many annual, semiperennial to perennial species and may be divided into two major groups with distinct cultivation requirements: in general species with a narrow, silvery-gray foliage prefer a very well drained, rather rocky soil in full sun and are excellent for the rock garden, whereas species with larger, glossy green leaves grow best in a well drained, humus-rich soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot in the garden.
Sow flat in any well drained soil. Keep pots in a protected spot outside in full sun during winter. As with most hardy perennials, germination occurs with rising temperatures in late spring the following year. Transplant as soon as seedlings are strong enough in late spring to early summer.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
