Dianthus 'Haytor Rock'


Dianthus 'Haytor Rock'

For my records. This is another from a selection at Hayloft Plants and has fringed white petals striped and flecked with crimson.

Thats very nice. I'm removing a lot of mine as they are disastrous in wet weather. Theyve been a mess all summer. I think I shall plant more Rosemary instead. It looks good all year around.

Oh what a shame Karen. I ordered a collection of 12 Dianthus from Hayloft Plants and about half have bloomed. I have the following info. from the delivery note:
They can survive temperatures as low as -27 degrees. They survive this in the ground rather than in pots. Make sure soil is well drained and avoid winter wet which can be harmful. Hmm, I wonder if that includes your part of the UK!

I potted up all of mine so they can go in the GH if the Winter is harsh.

They thrive here, but the flowers just get ruined by rain. So then i end up looking at brown mushy balls.

That colouring would go well with my rose, Hanky Panky. :))

Julia, I shall try to strike cuttings from it but have to say I rarely have success! Not sure why, as they are supposed to be so easy to do. My Mum used to propagate Pinks & Carnations from the supermarket ones ... clever girl! :o)

I've managed to stike a few from supermarket flowers myself. I usually allow them to develop roots in water first, before potting up. My latest successful ones are on my last blog.

Well, I had no idea they root in water! Guess what I shall be doing next week. :o)

I have had only four flowers on my Haytor Rock this year. They just haven't liked the wet. I get all of mine from Allwoods.

I potted my little collection up and put them under the shelter of the vine (polycarbonate roof above) so they have been sheltered ... seem better in pots than in the ground.
