Description

Description: Hardy, evergreen, spring-flowering perennial — Bears masses of small, cheerful, magenta-pink flowers with pale eyes above dark green foliage; flowers persist through early summer
Habit: Forms a dense mat 4 to 8 inches high and wide
Culture: Prefers full sun and well-drained garden loam
Hardiness: Cold hardy to USDA Zone 4 through 9
Origin: Europe

This charming species has lush, dark green foliage, unlike the evergreen grass pinks with thick, blue-green leaves. It is native to northern Greece through the Balkans and Macedonia where it grows on rocky slopes and scree. The numerous, solitary flowers are about a 1/2 inch across and are similar to the maiden pink (Dianthus deltoides) that naturalizes in grassy fields and meadows in North America. It was a useful plant for late 19th- and early 20th-century rock gardens. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9
