Description
 
A collection from China by Olsen & Floden of this well-known ornamental pink or carnation.  Very nice to have a documented collection as the cultivated material can get a little diluted via unintentional hybridization in the garden.  I know that is some of the most fun we have in the garden.  Crazy lacy hot tomato/fuchsia-pink flowers that are scented.  I'm wondering just what exactly that color is myself but know that it is very vibrant and will not be ignored.
