Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Firewitch'

Common Name: Cheddar Pinks

Shocking magenta-pink, upward-facing blooms which exude the scent of cloves appear in masses above silvery-blue mats of evergreen foliage. Each of the 5 petals have serrated edges, looking as if they have been trimmed with pinking shears, hence the common name 'Pinks'. If deadheaded, this species will flower heaviest in early summer and again in fall.

Cheddar Pinks are native to Cheddar Gorge, England, the same town which is famous for its cheddar cheese.
