Pinks

Pinks (Fire witch) Dianthus Feuerhexe

Planted. Perennial. Evergreen.  Compact, mounding habit. Shear when blooms fade to keep shape. 8” tall, 12” wide. Full sun. Heat and humidity tolerant.
Flowers: Fragrant single magenta pink. Blooms most of the summer. Remove faded flowers for continuous blossoms.
Leaves: grassy blue green foliage.
Eldest daughter gave me a pot for Mother’s Day 2008.  They didn’t like the window box, it was too dry, and the wash tub on the stump was too shaded. Now they happily bloom in the round bed on the path to the front door.

Meaning: woman’s love
