China pinks (Dianthus chinensis) are an old-fashioned cold-loving annual that never fell out of favor.
The China pinks (Dianthus chinensis L.) are used in flower gardens due to their early and abundant flowering, especially in spring and fall when the weather is cooler (SAKATA SEED SUDAMERICA, 2015).
