Dianthus 'Kahori' is a great border plant also known by the name border pinks. They have brightly coloured, dark pink-purple flowers and the foliage is great for use as a ground cover plant. Originating from Japan, this cultivar forms a low-growing clump of grass-like, grey-green leaves. Flowers last much longer than those from the original species, providing a summer display of scented, semi-double flowers. Suits planting in as edging or in a rock garden. The Japanese word Kahori translates to fragrance, these plants are named after their strong scent.
