Delightful Dianthus

Dianthus come in many colors. In my yard, they have survived many nights of freezing or below freezing temperatures. This photo was taken just a few days ago, as testament to their winter hardiness.

They are a bright spot in an otherwise lackluster garden of mostly evergreens and frozen-back plants.

Another dianthus plant, this one bright pink.

  1. It always amazes me that these little 'dainty' looking plants are the real survivors.
