Yet more evidence of the old adage that Good things come in small packages! 🙂
The Dianthus flowers are smallish (under an inch (2.5cm) in diameter) but are incredibly intricate in their structure and petal design. A fertilised, well-watered, but not over-watered, small pot can produce hundreds of these flowers over a season. They need light but prefer to avoid strong, direct sunlight – at least in my region just south of the tropics.
