Dianthus Candy Floss ('Devon Flavia') (Scent First Series) (Pbr) (Pot Pink)


Dianthus Candy Floss ('Devon Flavia') (Scent First Series) (Pbr) (Pot Pink)

Spicily scented bi-coloured flowers


A recently introduced perennial, which has already won itself the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Its soft pink petals, which look as though they have been neatly trimmed with pinking shears, are flecked with crimson towards their base. They form exquisite flowers, that have a strong clove-like scent, on stout stems above the clumps of grey-green foliage. Unlike many other pinks, they will flower whenever it is warm enough, which usually ensures a bumper crop of flowers over a longer period from late spring to summer.


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: rich but well-drained, alkaline to neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Flower colour: soft pink often with a darker eye
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
