Macro Monday – Dianthus

Dianthus is a favorite spring to summer flower in my garden. These comes in a variety of colors and are quite eye catching. They have a mild clove like fragrance.  Birds and bees alike love these flowers.

These small flowers are often  mistaken for carnations because of their jagged petals. They have blueish-green grass like leaves.  They can be easily grown from seeds.

They love full sun and grow well in well draining soil. In spring, they bloom in abundance.  They are fantastic for window planters.
