STAR SINGLE Peppermint Star Pinks (Dianthus x Noreen)
STAR SINGLE Peppermint Star Pinks
Cool, calm and collected, the frosted blue-green leaves of Peppermint Star Pinks (Dianthus ‘Peppermint Star’) will add gorgeous evergreen bunches and bundles to your edging and Rock Gardens! Low-growing and dense, these hardy perennials smother themselves each spring in clouds of brilliant lavender-pink single blossoms with darker, rosy-red eyes!
Garden Pinks have been a garden standard for generations! Tough and adaptable, they seem to thrive in areas other plants can’t, while looking gorgeous and care-free! Spicy scented, the long-lasting blossoms are as beautiful in the ground as they are in containers and spilling over edges of planters or garden borders.
Peppermint Star may have shorter stems, but you’ll still enjoy these dainty blossoms in your bouquets and nosegays! Sure to brighten anyone’s day, the spiky texture of the foliage and the cool hue it retains year-round delights you, your pollinators, and maybe a hummingbird or two!
These are ideal edging to define the transition between lawn and garden bed and no Perennial border or traditional Cottage garden seems complete without these brilliant little blooms. Pollinator and Rock gardens are always welcome locations for dense, mat-forming, low-growing clumps of evergreen foliage, where they happily ramble over rocks.
Peppermint Star Pinks add dainty tufts of color when planted among or on top of retaining walls, and are great erosion control for hard-to-mow hillsides and slopes. Their modest size and bright color make them wonderful spillers in your patio pots, porch planters and even hanging baskets. Pollinators adore these spicy-sweet flowers as much as we do!
Dianthus Pinks have very low moisture requirements once established and tolerate hot, dry sites and occasional drought. Plant in a full sun location in well-drained soil, and you’ll be rewarded with bountiful blooms. Prune or pinch back stems after flowering to clean up the clump.
Peppermint Star Pinks are traditional and beloved garden plants for all sized yards. Mingling among all other plants with grace, beauty and ease!
