A great dianthus. Not much of a fan of pink flowers, but I like these for some reason. Takes total drought or heavy rains with ease here in zone 9A.
Update, July 2014: Mine died as a result of the mega-rain of May 2014 (14" in 2 days). Am keeping my rating on Positive, though.

This is a charming little plant. I have it in my rose garden and it does well as an border or underplanting. I was very happy to notice a beautiful smell when it blooms. Very pretty old fashioned perennial. Hope to have a large drift soon.
