What dianthus?

-- Posts: 88

I have this perennial red dianthus for years, but I don´t know the species. 

It´s very small (never over 6 inches high) and blooms almost nonstop.

Can anybody help me?

Thank you.

  • I have the exact same dianthus. On the tag, it says Pavlova mix. It has some in overall white and red and white mix as well.

  • also says barbatus

    I have found out this cultivar is a crossing (believe it or not) of D.barbatus with

    D.chinensi (Dianthus barbatus x Dianthus chinensis). That´s why the flowers look

    like those of Chinese Pink and the plant is short and broad-leaved like Sweet

    William.
