Last year I planted a dianthus and a phlox in a stone pot. The phlox flowered earlier.
Now it's the turn of the dianthus to do it's stuff.
So what's all this about?
The tub is full of tiny white dianthus? flowers. They don't have any noticeable perfume and each flower is fairly nondescript but they do produce a frothy effect.
So where have they come from these tiny white flowers? (Note the theme here remember how my ladybird poppies seem to have produced a white offspring? - see here) The only explanation that I have is that the dianthus has self seeded and doesn't produce seeds true to form but this flower is as different from the possible parent as can be! Any other explanations? And what about the dianthus that I planted can it compete with it's possible offspring or should I weed them out - decisions, decisions.
PS: Just another reminder to enter the flower competition as June will whizz by faster than you think - the closing date is next Saturday
