Dianthus | Sweet William

Zones 4-9 | | Blooming Late Spring - Summer

From the Greek words for 'God' (dios) and 'flower' (anthos), dianthus are a critical food source for the larvae of many moths and butterflies. Known as garden or cheddar pinks, dianthus are enjoyed for their silvery-green foliage and showy, fragrant flowers. Most varieties bloom in some variation of red, white, pink and bi-colored combinations. The plants are appropriate for rock gardens and the water-wise border. The flowers are wonderful for perfumed bouquets, blooming in late spring or summer. The plants are cold hardy and heat tolerant.
