A must plant for any garden! Tiny Rubies has tough steel-blue foliage that will grow in a wide range of situations. In spring, this plant is adorned with little hot pink flowers. Great for entryways, courtyards, or as a stand alone border plant with reoccurring blooms and a great fragrance. Also great in a fairy garden container by itself or surrounding other perennials. Shear back blooms to keep tidy.

Gardening Tips From Fran

Dianthus Tiny Rubies is one of the first plants I ever grew.
It's just an old standby that out performs most plants in the garden. Worth every penny, 365 days a year.

Super plant! Tough, dependable and fragrant!

A winner in anyone's garden! Plant along a border, edge or in a will not be disappointed!

~ This Dianthus will cross over for lawn replacement and

pathways...but it can bunch up over time, which should be noted.
