Plant Features

The Devon Cottage Rosy Cheeks Dianthus Plant is also known as Valda Louise Sweet William and has, on occasion, been spelled as Rosie Cheeks. The fully double, carnation-like blossoms measure up to 2-inches across and impart a distinctly clove-like essence that is as pleasing to you as it is to the hummingbirds and butterflies. Rosy Cheeks bears blushing pink blossoms atop delicate-looking but strong foliage that is bluish-green and waves with just the hint of a breeze. It salt tolerance makes it ideal for coastal gardeners as well.
