Product Details

Product Details

We like Garden Pinks as a houseplant because it blooms for weeks and offers a sweet, spicy fragrance that is completely unexpected indoors. The variety called Dianthus ‘Little Pink’ is an exceptionally heavy bloomer, and we offer plants that are bushy and round, with their buds set. Placed in a cool sunny window, they will bloom within several weeks of arrival. When spring finally arrives, you can plant them outdoors, where they will provide color and fragrance for years to come. We ship 3 plants in clay pots that measure 5" wide x 4½" tall. Saucers included.

WEATHER PERMITTING - Working with Mother Nature

In our business, we work closely with Mother Nature. In the colder months when we stipulate that an item is shipped “weather permitting”, that means temperatures outside our shipping facility in northwestern Connecticut and along the shipping route must be warm enough for tender plants to survive in unheated delivery trucks. Our practice of waiting for windows of milder weather may result in the occasional delay, but our customers tend to appreciate the care we take to make certain their plants arrive in the very best possible condition. Questions? Don’t hesitate to call our customer service staff at 1-800-411-6159.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Latin Name Pronunciation: dye-an'thus    

Most varieties require full sun (partial shade in warm inland areas of the West). D. deltoides varieties tolerate partial shade. All require well-drained soil with a pH close to neutral. Add a handful of lime when planting if your soil is excessively acid. Keep mulch well away from crown. Shear back flower stems after the first wave of bloom to encourage repeat bloom (rebloom is not dependable in the South). Most varieties are evergreen; do not cut back in fall. Prune away winterkill stems in spring.

Growing Dianthus Indoors

For Dianthus plants to bloom properly indoors, they need lots of sunshine (from a south- or southwest-facing window). Water when the top 1" of soil is dry to the touch. Remove faded flowers to encourage the development of new buds. Plants are otherwise undemanding.

When the danger of frost has passed in spring, bring your plant outdoors and place it in partial shade for several days before planting it in full sun. Your Dianthus may not flower outdoors the first year, but you can look forward to its carnation-like blooms in subsequent years.
