Dianthus gratianopolitanus ÔBathÕs PinkÕ

BathÕs Pink Dianthus produces fragrant, 1Ó pink flowers that have red center markings and fringed edges; flowers stand 8-10 inches above the foliage. To keep blooming 6 weeks or more, deadhead at least weekly; and to keep clumps vigorous, divide every 2-3 years. Good air circulation and drainage work best to prevent any problems. If rust occurs, dust plants in the spring with sulfur.
