Frilly ornamental Anthos Dianthus-Garden(14)

            In this post you are going to discover a steady & popular flower ‘Dianthus’, even called sweet William. It produces right up flowers with frilly edge, that’s why titled and its appearance seems ornamental to any garden. Dianthus is a hardy plant to handle and generally with low mortality at the initial stage of transfer & posting.  
        I have decided to show the picture in three different modes, first Night Vision, secondly as Panoramic View and lastly Closeup View. Hope, by this way you can get the complete essence of the Dianthus beauty.
        Most importantly, this time I grown this flower at 6 inches pot (better at 8 inches), although most often preferred at bed, because it has the capacity to extend flowering from Dec/Jan. till March. At the end, one pot been displayed for assessment of the exact look, as well as limitations...                                                                                                                                               
                                                        Below : NIGHT VISION 






                                                                                                                             

        This particular quality, special dwarf variety (Ideal select mix) germinated at nursery, being of Pan America seeds, which cost me only @ Rs.3/- each. There are different hybrids varieties, with different colours & variegated patterns.
                                                   Below: PANORAMIC VIEW













        The flowers have five petals measuring 2-3 inches diameter, and comes out with number of flowers, typically with a frilled margin having clove like scent.
        The name Dianthus is from Greek word -‘Dios’ means God; and 'Anthos' means flower
                                                  Below : CLOSE-UP VIEW


















At last, see below the exhibit of a plant at pot, similarly having about twenty numbers, and photographed few hours back. There are only few number of flowers, because first flush given in January, now second flash started drying up due to heat...Another flash will come out with limited flowers & size... 


Many thanks for the visit...

@ Saru, Welcome here,
Nice observation! I have also same doubt, becoz I remember to grow sweet William earlier having separate identity. But this composition is from 'Wiki' & also known as 'China pink', may be until Dianthus got colour variances..
You are highly appreciated and offered flowery thanks..Stay happy.
