Pinks (Dianthus) are traditional cottage garden plants, coming in a range of colours and forms. Short-lived perennials, they make excellent bedding plants, and are perfect for growing at the front of sunny borders and in containers. Many varieties are scented and they look great in a vase.
Dianthus 'Doris' is a modern pink with scented, double, pale pink flowers with darker pink centres. The silvery-green foliage makes a good background for the mass of pink flowers, but even when not in flower the low creeping evergreen mats make a good background for surrounding plants.
For best results deadhead Dianthus 'Doris' regularly to prolong flowering. Trim back plants in autumn to promote new growth, and protect from excessive wet conditions in winter. Prune again in spring to maintain a tidy growth habit.
