A classic little Dianthus for the rock garden where it is a standout in a well-drained sunny position. 'Little Joe' makes small clumps of tight blue-green foliage and when the dark red flowers on 5" stems cover the plant in May into June, the effect is big and more like 'Hoss' than 'Little Joe'..
A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. Awesome Sweet William selected by John Grimshaw from seedlings at Monksilver Nursery and is notable for the foliage which turns maroon-black providing the perfect foil for the velvety maroon clustered flowers which smells of chocolate in warm weather - damn! Cut back after flowering for another go around. John personally gave us a piece from his garden so we have a fond attachment.
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. Good lacy hot tomato/fuchsia-pink flowers that are scented.
