Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

15. Maiden Pink
(Dianthus deltoides L.)

15. Maiden Pink

Dry soils are favoured by this attractive wild pink. It sometimes establishes itself on old walls and stonework, but more often in pastures and on hillsides. Its foliage is grass-like and forms loose tufts, and its stems, branching near the base, are about a foot long. The flowers are about three-quarters of an inch across, rose-coloured with white dots, and with toothed edges to the petals. They are not scented.
