Dianthus Singapore Flower
Most dianthus have pink, red, or white flowers with notched petals. Sweet Williams are biennial or short-lived perennials covered with bicolor flowers in late spring. Pinks are low-growing dianthus suitable for rock gardens. Carnations are taller and good for bouquets but tend to be less hardy than other dianthus.
The flowers have five petals, typically with a frilled or pinked margin, and are pale to dark pink. Dianthus blooms may be single or double, but all have the same jagged edged petals.
