Plant Features

The Devon Cottage Fancy Knickers Dianthus Plant must be the pride of English gardeners everywhere! Also known as Valda Isolde and looking remarkably like a carnation, though a touch more sedate, this Sweet William is pure, snowy white with lipstick smudges of cardinal-red at its center. Reaching a large size for Sweet William, with blossoms measuring almost 2-inches, Fancy Knickers stands out against its dainty, bluish-grey-green foliage. They cut well, last long and have a pleasing spicy scent!
