Info

We were given this plant many years ago by Linda Askey, longtime garden editor for Southern Living Magazine, who got it from the late Catherine Sims of the Southern Garden History Society. While this may be an old passalong cultivar like Dianthus 'Mrs. Sinkins', we haven't finished the paternity tests, hence the new moniker. Dianthus 'Birmingham' makes a 2' wide patch of steely blue foliage, topped in late April and early May with masses of 1' tall stalks of double white fragrant carnations. This heat and humidity loving selection is always the talk of our Spring Open House, so we felt it was time to share...enjoy.
