Cheddar Pinks Growing and Maintenance Tips
Grows in average moisture, a well-drained soil, in full sun. Drought tolerant, once established. Can tolerate some shade, but will often grow leggy and not bloom as prolifically. Most dianthus appreciate a little added lime to keep the centres from dying out. Remove spent flowers to extend bloom time. No serious disease and insect issues. Low-maintenance perennial.
