Dianthus Barbatus, Sweet William - Standard Albus / White


Standard single white flowered Sweet William.

A very ornamental plant, its flowers are very attractive to butterflies and moths. The flowers have a strong clove-like scent. Plants self-sow freely when grown in a suitable position.

Prefers a rich well-drained loamy soil in a sunny position, but succeeds in most soils including dry ones.

Although the Sweet William is a perennial species, it is quite short-lived and degenerates after its second year. It is best treated as a biennial in the garden.

Edible uses

The flowers have a mild flavour and are used as a garnish for vegetable and fruit salads, cakes, desserts, cold drinks etc
