Tried & True Kahori

Dianthus Kahori


Dianthus means “divine flower” in Greek likely due to their heavenly appearance and scent. Although best known for their various shades of pink, blooms from the over 300 species of dianthus span the nearly entire colour spectrum. These beautiful jagged-edged flowers are highlighted by the subtly handsome bluish-grey, mostly linear foliage. Despite their delicate appearance, these plants are robust and easy to grow.
