Dianthus Tiny Rubies, Dianthus 'Tiny Rubies', creates a sea of pink with a mass planting and produces a clove-scented fragrance. Rounded mounds of deep-green, evergreen foliage produce double, deep rose-pink blooms that have serrated, "pinked" edges. 'Tiny Rubies' will flower in early summer and will rebloom during the fall season. Cheddar Pinks are native to Cheddar Gorge, England and make a great addition to any landscape design.

Dianthus 'Tiny Rubies' needs a sunny site with well-drained soil, but will tolerate some shade in the afternoon along with humidity. Regular watering during prolonged dry spells will be necessary. However, they are tolerant of short periods of dryness. These fragrant, spicy dove-like flowers look wonderful as border plants, in rock gardens, along walks or paths, or as edging.
