Dianthus ‘Memories’ is a compact highly fragrant dianthus from renowned UK specialists Whetman Pinks. ‘Memories’ will flower over an extended period from spring to late summer. Masses of double white highly fragrant flowers smother the plant for a prolonged period from spring to summer. Dianthus ‘Memories’ forms a compact clump of blue-green spiky foliage which is attractive in its own right. Dianthus ‘Memories’ is an award winning new release recognised at the Chelsea Flower Show 2012 and ‘Best New Plant’ at the HTA National Plant Show in the UK.
These dianthus are ideal as a smaller perennial at the front of a border or as a low massed planting. Their fragrance makes them ideal around entrance ways. Dianthus are sun lovers, at home in a flower border or pot, and quite dry tolerant with the occasional deep watering in summer.
Magnifi-Scent dianthus are easy to grow, preferring average soil moisture and fertility. Removal of old flower heads will stimulate further flower flushes. Feed with slow release fertilizer in early spring for best performance. Quick to establish, very easy care. Evergreen.
