Dianthus Doris

Combining the best of new strains and classic traditional varieties, Dianthus Doris is a modern pink with strongly clove scented, double, pale pink flowers with darker pink/red marked centres. The silvery-green foliage makes a wonderful background for the mass of pink flowers. These creeping evergreen mats make a great background year-round for neighbouring plants. An essential dianthus.

Make the most to the scent by planting Doris near heavily-used paths or in pots next to the house. This is also a terrific dianthus in a container - try it with Cosmos as a companion.

Great In Your Garden...

Dianthus Doris is easy to grow and very hardy, so it's ideal for beginners, as once established, it is drought tolerant. It is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some or all of its leaves in a cold winter, but new growth will appear again in spring.

Pollinators absolutely love pinks, so expect to see a wider variety of insects that are good for your garden, such as bees and butterflies.

Plants only reach 40cm tall, so it is best used at the front of a border as edging or in a rock garden. It looks great in a pot or in troughs, trailing over the sides.

Pinks make wonderful cut flowers for small vases or as part of a larger arrangement. Doris's blooms and prolific flowering period means there will be plenty to cut and use in vases.
