Bought as a memorial to my dear friend 'Cheryl Miller'.

Not to be confused with another Dianthus that is often labelled 'Cheryl' but is actually 'Houndspool Cheryl'. That one has red flowers. Blooms from both plants are slightly scented.

They grow well in a mixed perennial border.
I take softwood cuttings (pippins) to increase them.
