Fragrant Perennials
COTTAGE PINK Dianthus plumarius         $2.00
Also called Grass or Spice Pink, it received its name plumarius from Gerard, on account of its feathered petals. Introduced from Europe in colonial days, it has been an extremely popular garden pink ever since on account of its hardiness and superb fragrance. Long ago it was used “to prevail against hot pestilential fevers, and to comfort the heart, being eaten now and then.” Also to flavor wine, hence another of its names, Sops in Wine. To 1 foot, they are available in: DOUBLE, flowers large, borne profusely and highly fragrant; and SINGLE, known also as Pheasant Eye or Scotch Pink with flowers fragrant, exquisitely marked and penciled. Zone 3.
