Dianthus (Dianthus Gratianopolitanus Cheddar Pink) - Dianthus Gratianopolitanus Cheddar Pink is a stunning, wide-spreading ground cover plant with grassy, blue-green foliage and pink flowers. It establishes easily from Dianthus seeds, and it can be used to edge a flower bed or grow it in your rock garden for a splash of cool color. To keep its blooms going, be sure to deadhead. Its flowers are pink and have a spicy, clove-like scent. This Dianthus Cheddar Pink makes a great addition to any flower garden, rock garden, or mass planting as a flowering ground cover.
Sow Dianthus Gratianopolitanus seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost. Use sterile starter mix, and sow the ground cover seeds on top, covering lightly with soil. Transplant seedlings outdoors after frost season has passed. For directly sowing Dianthus ground cover seeds outdoors, wait until danger of frost is over, and directly sow Dianthus seeds into prepared beds. Lightly cover and keep seeds moist.
