Diascia vigilis

Twinspur, Dianthus elegans

Saucer-like, salmon to pink flowers bloom on these annuals and perennials from South Africa. Some varieties have deep pink or orange flowers. Excellent for rock gardens, borders, bedding and containers, but are not good as cut flowers. The generously branching, spreading perennials do best where summers are not too hot or humid. Plants need good drainage, and perennials die in winter if soil is wet.
