This Southern heirloom perennial was given to us by our friend “Dr. Dirt” from Jackson, Mississippi. He is a genuine gardener that I met in 2005 with a true knack for growing plants. I was in Jackson doing a gardening radio show with him and Felder Rushing and got to visit his home garden. The dianthus has no doubt graced many a hot and humid garden throughout the gulf coast area for decades. With its dark green leaves and deep red springtime flowers, it has definitely been a winner in my garden.
