Neat buns of prickly grey foliage covered with vivid pink flowers in early to mid summer; it's especially free-flowering. This is a particularly good plant for stone troughs etc. but it will do just as well on the rock garden in a sunny position with a gritty soil. About 5 to 7cm high (2" to 3")
A wonderful recent introduction having the Hedgehog Dianthus (Dianthus erinaceus) as a parent.
