Common Name: Pinks Family: Caryophyllaceae (The Pink Family)

Dianthus  Devon Cottage 'Fancy Knickers'
Zoom In Photo:

You gotta have this plant just for the name! Then plant it beside 'Rosy Cheeks'. Yes. Gardening can be sexy and titillating! 'Fancy Knickers' has elegant, double, white flowers with a hint of red in the centre and great fragrance. With a little deadheading it can bloom all summer. Nice evergreen bluish green foliage forms a great groundcovering mat. A selection from the Devon Cottage series.
