Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Tiny Rubies'

Pinks-Cheddar

A fun spring bloomer with great impulse appeal. Pleasantly fragrant, small, double, rose pink flowers appear like lollipops atop a low, dense carpet of gray-green, evergreen foliage. Shearing back after blooming keeps plants tidy and may promote rebloom.
