Dianthus plants, also known as carnations or pinks, are a group of flowering plants that are known for their fragrant, brightly colored flowers. They come in a variety of colors including pink, red, white, and purple and they have a wide range of cultivars, including single and double blooms, fringed or ruffled flowers and some have long lasting blooms. The flowers are typically 1-2 inches in diameter and are arranged on long, slender stems. The leaves of the plant are blue-green and glossy.

Dianthus plants are easy to grow and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor gardening. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil and are drought tolerant once established. They can be grown in borders, rock gardens, and as container plants. They are also often used as cut flowers and in floral arrangements. They are known for their long blooming period and low maintenance needs.

Dianthus plants are also versatile in terms of their height and habit, some varieties like the “border carnations” grow to be around 12-18 inches tall, while others like the “Dwarf carnations” stay shorter and compact. They are also relatively disease and pest resistant, making them a great choice for gardeners of all levels.

It’s important to note that the plants can be sensitive to high humidity and high temperatures, especially in the summer. To keep them healthy, it’s a good idea to provide good air circulation around the plant and to deadhead the flowers regularly to promote continuous blooming.
