Dynasty is a range of double-flowered dianthus with flowers that have the appearance of mini-carnations. The plants bear well-branched, strong-stemmed, upright flowers that are lightly scented, and come in four colours - a rich purple, a velvety red, 'Rose Lace' which is a lovely deep rose with a fine white outer edge, and 'White Blush', which has white flowers with a rose-pink blush that fades as the flower matures. Pinks have long been favourites with cottage gardeners but their charm and scent means that they are a good addition to any garden.
