Cute as a button but sharp as a tack!  This petite new selection produces a shower of cheerful raspberry colored, 1-1½” round blossoms with tiny light pink spots and a sharply precise, white picotee edge on each petal.  Unlike many Dianthus, this one has nearly smooth edged petals and its contrasting colors really make it pop.  You’ll love its sweet fragrance too! 

Grey-green foliage forms a short, dense, compact, rounded clump that is the perfect size for edging.
