The subtleties of the Dianthus we’ve selected will take you back to Roman times, when this plant was regarded as divine, ‘Jove’s Flower’. Throughout history, clove-scented Dianthus have been cultivated for their fragrance and essential oils. Easy to grow and vigorous in well drained soil, Dianthus, with neat mounds of linear blue, green or gray-green foliage, are an ageless addition to any garden, especially suited to timeworn habitats such as the rockery, walls or stone pathways.

Hello Nicolas,
Beautiful shot of this species of Dianthus. The similar sp. arinarius, all white, covers the sand dunes here in early summer. Good sharpness and lovely colour. Personally I'm not too keen on the very black background for a wild flower but for certain purposes it can of course be useful.
TFS, Ulla
