Pinks (Dianthus) are traditional cottage garden plants, coming in a range of colours and forms. Short-lived perennials, they make excellent bedding plants, and are perfect for growing at the front of sunny borders and in containers. Many varieties are scented and they make fantastic cut flowers.
The fully double flowers of Dianthus ‘Candy Floss’ have soft pink, crimson-flecked petals with serrated edges. Flowers are borne on strong stems and have a good clove-like scent, making them ideal for using in indoor flower arrangements. Unlike many other varieties, ‘Candy Floss’ flowers over a long period, from late spring to summer.
