Ruby Tuesday - Dianthus

There is a 10 inch strip of soil along the outside of my driveway which provides an ideal space for several varieties of dianthus, a humble cousin of the carnation.  They bloom from spring to fall, hold up well in summer heat, and with a little help are winter hardy.

You have so many blooms all at the same time! That must really make waking up in the mornings such a pleasant experience if you get to see these first thing every day!
