Not blue!Nothing like the photo or the description. Flower color is a clear saturated pink, no hint of blue or lavender. Waited a year to see these bloom only to be disappointed by the color. Foliage is finer and more delicate than typical dianthus chinensis, leaves sometimes displaying pink or reddish tips. Burns up easily in Texas full sun, so I recommend part or morning sun only.
