Positive Weezingreens On Jan 9, 2003, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

'Flashing Lights' is a delightful deltoide dianthus. The small dark leaves form a mat that makes it perfect for rock gardens, troughs, and borders. In late spring through late summer, tiny brilliant red flowers appear on tiny stems about 4 inches tall, giving the impression the blooms are levitating above the foliage.
