Buy Dianthus Pink Kisses ('Kledg12163') (PBR) pink: Small in size, but very generous with its flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An incredibly prolific bloomer, this compact pink is great for pots and sunny borders, but it will also work well in an alpine bed or rockery. The lightly scented flowers are initially quite rich in colour, but as they age, the outer edge of each petal fades to a softer pink (almost blush), and this creates a distinctive two-tone effect. This little gem thrives in a sunny spot, and if you keep on dead-heading, it will continue sending up more and more flowers.
    The pot shown is not included, however, if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead to prolong flowering.

I wish I could buy this plant again !!

Have just received and planted these lovely Dianthus. I was thrilled how colourful they were. Two of the three plants after just 24 hours have no flowerheads due to Pigeons taking them off !! They don't even seem to be eating them or anything as the heads have been left next to the plant !! Colourful language followed. So please be aware of this issue, when purchasing. The plants were of a high quality and quite sturdy when they arrived.

Long flowering and easy

Flowers in abundance from end of April in my garden. I've kept it in a pot this year but will put it into the beds in the autum. Excellent value for money given its flowering period and that it is so easy to look after.

Gorgeous little plant

This is a lovely little plant: fragrant, trouble free and compact with that gorgeous smell of cloves that I so love dianthus for. It goes beautifully with my roses and flowers its heart out over a long period. Be aware that the flowers are very small, but for a small garden this is the perfect variety - and no staking.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
