Dianthus are back in vogue due to superior new varieties now being available. Offering nothing short of outstanding garden performance, 'Romance' hails from decades of specialised dianthus breeding. As part of the Scent First Collection, this variety delivers everything we love about 'garden pinks', including fantastic colour and fragrance but with the real bonus of long term garden results. By adding 'Romance' to your garden you will be creating impressive garden displays with minimal effort. Whilst it rewards you with gorgeous colour and whimsical perfume, it will also thrive under a wide range of garden conditions. Compact habit, strong flower stems and masses of blooms are why 'Romance' is recognised as a market leader. The baby pink, frilled flowers held on short stems close to the plant are simply delightful.

Another outstanding introduction from the world renowned dianthus breeder 'Whetman Pinks'.

Low maintenance and easy to grow. Water requirements are low once established, with 'Romance' being quite dry tolerant. Pruning generally not required, although removing spent flower heads will encourage further blooms. Apply a slow release fertiliser in early spring for optimum performance.
