This plant is a former winner of Perennial Plant of the Year! One of the best of all the Cheddar Pinks for its mounded, silvery-blue foliage and a bright display of single magenta flowers in spring. Sporadically re-blooms all summer. Deer resistant. Cheddar Pinks grow best in well-drained, loose soil that is not wet in winter. Drought tolerant. Requires little water once established.
