ID please :)
New to gardening and bought some of these in Homebase labelled as mixed colour carnations - i'm fairly certain they are not
They certainly look like dianthus to me - but then I am rubbish with flowers
"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it." Sir Terry Pratchett
I think its a dianthus ...there are many different types, some of which are the carnations you would recognise as a “buttonhole” flower, and some which are more dainty.
Here’s a good link that looks at them all ....
Great, thanks all, they look lovely either way
Just not the mixed white/red/pink they were listed as then
That one's pink but they do come in red and in white. Maybe you were unlucky and picked up only pink ones.
Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
They are beautiful any colour
