If you love pink and you haven't grown Dianthus 'First Love', what are you waiting for? This amazing plant from Takii Seed Co. is hardy within a barbed wire strand of the North Pole, has fragrant flowers from spring to frost, and is incredibly easy to grow in a wide range of conditions. The 15" tall spikes of flowers emerge white, change to light pink, then to dark pink, which means you will have all three colors at the same time...like when I wash my clothes when my wife is out of town. I forgot to mention the foliage looks great in winter...assuming your garden is not under snow.
