Positive Todd_Boland On Jul 3, 2006, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

There are many imposters under this name but the real D. pavonius can be recognized by the buffy colour on the undersides of the petals. Unlike most Dianthus, this prefers slightly acidic soil. Great plant for the rockery or trough and as with all Dianthus, it is fragrant.
