The Dianthus ‘Rosie Cheeks’ has vibrant pink flowers that look especially stunning combined with blue and purple shades. Dianthus will bloom from mid-summer to early fall. For a longer bloom time it’s necessary to deadhead the blooms continuously throughout the summer. Dianthus needs a sunny site with well-drained soil but it will tolerate some shade in the afternoon. These fragrant flowers look wonderful as a border plant arranged in rock gardens planted along walks or paths used for edging and make a good addition to cottage gardens.
