Dianthus arenarius 'Little Maiden' (p)
Good things come in small packages and this little cultivar was discovered as a chance seedling at the Valfredda nurseries in Lombardy.
It's a truly gorgeous plant with pure white, fragrant flowers and blue-green almost grass like foliage. The growth habit is dense forming tight round hummocks.
Although the sand pink can survive in Siberian winters it will only do so if grown in sandy, free draining soils. Heavy clay will kill them outright but a rocky crevice will see them thrive. Worth building a dry stone wall for.
Well drained, poor, dry
