The name comes from the Greek meaning ‘divine flowers.’ Some Dianthus are carnations; some are commonly known as Pinks, not for their color, but for their serrated petal tips which look like they’ve been cut with pinking shears. All have fabulous fragrance.
All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
