    dianthus cruentas pale pink flower If, like me, you are a fan of Dianthus carthusianorum with its vibrantly pink-flowers on tall wiry stems, or the red-shaded Dianthus cruentas, you may be interested in another single-flowered pink of great loveliness. Dianthus ‘Anders Peace’ (£3.95 from ) carries delicate pale pink flowers singly on strong stems, making it an appealing plant for a well-drained sunny border, gravel garden, or even a container. It can also be grown for cutting, although I’m not sure I could bear to cut it.
