I started seeds of these Sea Pinks (Joystick Lilac Shades) from Aimers / Lake Valley Seed in May. They recommended germination temperatures between 60 - 70 degrees. We had a cool summer over all, and while many of my from seed plants do manage to flower in one year, this one has not. I expect it will present itself as a reasonable garden contributor next season, but this season they were little more than flat 3 - 6" rosettes of deep green long lance like leaves, often looking offended at being bullied by their more robust neighbors.

Short 12" - Plant 12" apart. Rosy lilac spheres, blooms into summer. Flowers in the late spring. Does well and is colorful almost anywhere. Consistently evergreen in southern gardens; semi-evergreen in the north.
