The Dianthus perennial garden flower is sometimes called pinks.
'Dianthus' flowers are perfect old fashioned perennial plants to grow in front of your roses, to hide their 'bare legs'.
The 'Dianthus' pixie perennial is the most popular 'Dianthus' variety, mostly because it has been around a while.
I think some the newer perennial Dianthus varieties are just as nice.
It's easy to grow pinks - Dianthus. Just deadhead (remove spent blooms) and divide every 3 years years.
The blooms are very charming, small and frilly, and now available in lots of colors, except blue.

The best way to grow the perennial pink Dianthus is to fertilize regularly, and, very important, plant only in well-drained soil.
Pinks will develop root-rot in soggy wet soil.
It's an ideal perennial to select for a cottage rose garden.
