This large family of sun-loving, easy-care bloomers includes compact forms as well as and taller forms. All dianthus have pretty blue-green foliage that looks terrific paired with their deliciously fragrant pink, white, rose, yellow, red, or bi-colored flowers. Butterflies love the nectar-rich blooms, too. Use in mixed containers or plant them in drifts or clumps in your flower border or rock garden. Dianthus is also deer resistant.
