Dianthus gratianopolitanus (Border Pinks)

Example of approximately what these plants look like when shipped. See the eighth photograph of any plant to see a photo of what it looks like when shipped.
Dianthus gratianopolitanus offers wonderful evergreen foliage in a gray-green shade and absolutely fabulous, often fragrant blossoms that cover the plant in a shockingly pleasing show of color for an extended period. It is an outstanding groundcover, particularly on dry slopes.

Gardeners don't just collect varieties of Dianthus for their flowers, though. When many plants are placed together, the low-growing foliage creates a pool of deep blue when not in bloom. This tough, cold and drought tolerant, easy-to-grow groundcover will put up with some salt and deer will avoid it too. Its uses are endless, from borders and edging to rock gardens and along walks or paths.

Go ahead and try one; we're willing to bet you'll be back for the other varieties too!
