Dianthus ID please!

KPlum(7a)May 21, 2014

I have a wonderful dianthus that has survived everything- College Station 'a summer heat, a move to a different state, 2 transplants, and the Oklahoma winter. It had a nice silver-blue during the winter.

Anyone know what type of dianthus this is?? Which dianthus varieties have you had the most success with ( I'm in central OK ) ?

I've had success with all of the perennial types. They take the heat, drought and will tolerate quite a bit of dry shade and some pretty crappy soil. You name the kind, it grows good here. I just cut back the Cheddar Pink ones. They are very blue & the flowers are strongly fragrant -- I've divided it several times and spread them into all kinds of difficult spots. White, red, pink, all of them do good. I love the 'everblue' foliage even more so than the flowers.
