My Favorite Dianthus

I received a gift certificate for Bluestone Perennials for the last few years from my sister, the cat lover. This has been my favorite mail order source for nice healthy perennials. I really look forward to receiving their catalogue during the cold, snowy days of December. Last year, I ordered a Dianthus named Greystone. I received three of them and promptly planted them. The description read "white, fringed, extra-fragrant flowers." I was sold. This year, the plants have formed a wonderful fragrant clump of beautiful white scented flowers. This plant has lived up to its description. I know that I will look forward to seeing it pop up in my garden again next year. It has been in bloom for the last three weeks and is still looking good.

That's really pretty. I love Bluestone, too. I didn't think their things last year were quite up to their usual good quality and size, but the things I got this spring were wonderful. I think they're a great company to deal with.
