Dianthus - Lace Perfume - Dianthus hybridus
Perennial Hybrid - A new, highly fragrant dianthus from our elite British breeder, these lovely flowers have dainty laced and fringed blossoms that look like softly colored snowflakes. Lace Perfume entices with a heady, spicy/sweet clove-like fragrance that wafts seductively in the air. The sturdy branching plants grow 12 to 18 inches tall with flowers in rose, lilac, soft pink, white and many delicate bi-colors. When cut for bouquets, the lacy blossoms of these fragrant flowers seem to arrange themselves.
