Gorgeous plant. :) Round, double "carnation" like flowers with dark eye/ color at the bottom of each petal. The color is pink with burgundy marking. The scent is STRONG and lovely. It has pretty , "glaucus" blue/green foliage. Recommended. So far going strong. Will report how it overwinters. Will upload picture soon. Another (love dianthuses) dianthus delight. So far thriving on neglect. :)

We always called this plant "Susan" and have grown it successfully in Vancouver BC. Can also be propagated with leaf stems, strip off most of the lower leaves and plant it.
