Dianthus Mrs SinkinsBred in Berkshire, England in 1883 by Mr. Sinkins, this old fashioned pink has evergreen
foliage that is grass-like and silvery-green. The double white flowers with green centers appear in summer and have shaggy-looking petals and a strong pleasant clove fragrance. They are good in the vase and can be used in cooking to add a clove-like flavor. Excellent choice for a cottage garden and use as a ground cover.
