Long Flowering Garden Pinks
These wonderful summer flowering pinks are ideal in any garden, with their repeat flowering abilities and beautiful clove scent they have it all. Designated by the Royal Horticultural Society Scientific Committee as Allwoodii pinks, originally created by our founder Montagu Allwood who crossed old fashioned pinks with perpetual flowering carnations, producing repeat flowering varieties with the hardiness and clove scent of pinks and the long flowering ability of greenhouse carnations. They revolutionised the popularity and garden worthiness of pinks and led them being as popular as they are today.
