Bath's Pink Garden Pinks Dianthus Plant bears somewhat lacy, 1-2 inch, medium-pink flowers with gorgeous magenta rings. If offers silvery-green, grassy foliage that stands up to cold, heat, salt and humidity beautifully. The scent is clove-like and somewhat similar to that of a carnation. Mmmmm scrumptious! Dianthus thrive in sunny locations with well-drained soils. Light afternoon shade can be helpful in the very southern gardens. Drought tolerant once established, they are perfect for balconies, rock gardens and gardens with sandy soil. Butterflies are attracted to these plants.
