Carthusian pink (Dianthus carthusianorum), also known as clusterhead pink, bears clusters of bright pink flowers from early to mid- or late summer atop slender, 18- to 24-inch-tall stems over dense tufts of grass-like green leaves. It’s perfectly at home in a cottage garden with speedwells (Veronica), lady’s mantles (Alchemilla), and roses, or in a low meadow interplanted with relatively low grasses, such as prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis) and tufted hairgrass (Deschampsia cespitosa). Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 5 to 9.
Collected in late July 2022. At least 25 seeds.
