Plant of the month - Beautiful Dianthus

You may know this months Plant of the Month as its more common name - the carnation. So pretty and so easy to grow too! They're super hardy, love the sun and are drought AND frost resistant. Perfect for old Canberra town.

A great weed suppressor and very low maintenance, they require no special pruning or spraying. You can literally forget about them, just like the one in my garden! Best thing is they don't become a pesky weed themselves, unlike many other perennials can.

But mostly, they are just BEAUTIFUL. We've got some stunning deep red ones available at Bliss right now as well as pretty Candy Floss pink.
