This species of Dianthus is native to the Balkans, where it grows in full sun among alpine and subalpine rocky ledges and screes.  Plants form relatively compact domes of narrow, leaves which are often blue-tinted.  The flowers are solitary atop 10-15 cm stems.  Blossoms are deeply lacerated and highly fragrant.

Cultivation:

Blooming Period:
