Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
I think mostly of the 'maiden pink,' and similar small types that seldom grow taller that one foot, and are most effective massed in a bed.
Several species being native to the UK and Europe, their cultivation is probably 'lost in antiquity.' (I have just checked my Sanders' Encyclopaedia of Gardening, so have instantly become knowledgeable).
Digression- I wonder if it has any use in old medicine?
