Dianthus x chinensis ‘Super Parfait Strawberry’
Synonyms: Dwarf Dianthus
This seemed like such a happy flower when I saw it at the nursery. Red and white is one of my favorite color schemes in the garden and this lines up perfectly. It is an annual plant here but you can sometimes get seedlings to return. The label said this cultivar grows 6 to 12 inches and that is perfect for a nice color carpet.
Since it is Sunday here is bonus shot of another rose. The flowers actually looked a little more yellow in real life. You can see the conditions were not perfect for picture snapping.
