Plant Features

The Dianthus Scent First™ Romance Garden Pinks Plant is another successful production from Whetman Pinks®. Bred first for its scent, this beautiful and, oh-so-feminine, blossom has double petals of the prettiest pastel pink with lipstick smudges of deeper, richer pink at the center of each. Backed by the silvery-blue, ferny foliage, romantic is only one of the many adjectives that will be used to describe this Sweet William. Coordinate with accent plants in mixed containers or use as a border plant to lead the way to your front door, greeting your visitors with the pleasant spicy scent. Its salt tolerance makes it possible for our coastal gardeners to enjoy these to their heart's content.

Scent First Romance

This has been my first experience with Dianthus and I chose right. These plants are beautiful, continually blooming from one week after planting. I have become accustomed to receiving the best quality plants from GrowJoy.
