Item details

Cheddar Pink (Dianthus gratianopolitanus)

5 Jumbo plug plants

A rare British wildflower, native to the Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, where it grows on the steep limestone cliffs.
A good nectar plant. Food plant of the Varied Coronet moth and the Lychinis moth.

Where to plant in my garden?

A beautifully scented cottage garden plant, preferring well drained soil in full sun. Good for a rock garden, the edge of a border or in a window box.

Flowers: May-July
Habitat: Limestone cliffs
Height: Up to 50cm
Growth Type: Scented evergreen perennial
Position: Full sun

An alternative to consider is the Maiden pink (Dianthus deltoides) with similar-coloured flowers to Cheddar pink, but smaller and unscented.

Advised to plant in informal groups to encourage recognition and attract bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.
