Bath's Pink Dianthus produces fragrant, 1" pink flowers that have red center markings and fringed edges; flowers stand 8-10"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.
