Earlier I posted a photo of a D. Alpinus that flowered shortly after germinating. I tried to save it, but that plant did not survive being planted out in the bed. However, two others are thriving. They do have some obvious differences, though -- one has thinner, spikier leaves than the other. I've also grown some D. Arenarius, again with a little variation, with one having longer leaves than the other four. The other two I've pictured here are from a "Dianthus Mix" mystery packet. I've gotten five different varieties out of it but I've shown here two of the more interesting. I'm looking forward to and will update y'all with photos when they start to flower.
Love 'em. They are so cute, especially when they are small.
