Dianthus 'Sunflor' is a series of attractive evergreen perennials. They are short-lived, stunning upright and bushy plants with grey-green foliage and pretty, colourful, fragrant flowers. Excellent choice for bedding or placement in a cottage garden setting. Would also suit rock gardens, placement at the front of a sunny border due to their short stature or container growing.
