This "catchfly" is a densely mounded herbaceous perennial producing profuse, brilliant pink, carnation-like flowers from early May into June and July. It is an ideal substitute for Dianthus, and is indeed a relative, having a similar appearance and bloom time, but tolerating a wider variety of garden situations. Delightful, compact and very easy to grow!

Sowing Advice

Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
