Known as 'clove pinks' and grown extensively for centuries, this frilly shell pink cultivar is a must have for the charming cottage garden to lend an air of quaintness and romanticism that is all too elusive these days. The best part is, one can bring a bit of this cottage charm with a sweet clove scent indoors, as this is a wonderful long lasting cut flower variety.
