Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Sparkling white blooms are borne in abundance above neat mounds of evergreen, linear, grey-green foliage. Dianthus caryophyllus ‘White’ is a traditional hardy border Carnation with a distinctive sweet perfume. Flowering abundantly throughout summer and often, well beyond into autumn, this hard working perennial is a stalwart of cottage garden planting schemes, and equally pleasing in gravel gardens, cut flower borders and containers. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Most dianthus have a pleasant spicy, floral, clove-like taste, especially the more fragrant varieties, and are ideal for decorating or adding to cakes. They'll also make a colourful garnish to soups, salads and the punch bowl. The petals will add zest to ice cream, sorbets, salads, fruit salad, dessert sauces, seafood and stir-fries.
