Description :

Sweet Williams - or as we say in French, the 'poet's little eyes' - have always been my favourites for their lovely scent and generous flowers which make beautiful bouquets.

I came across this very particular variety of Dianthus barbatus in the spring of 2005 (!) when going through my seed catalogues: coppery-black flowers on purple-black foliage with metallic highlights.

Such an unusual variety was bound to please me and, I hope, you will like it, too!

In the garden we like to combine Dianthus barbatus nigrescens 'Sooty' with other dark foliage plants: Ophiopogon 'Black Dragon', Trifolium repens 'Purpurascens', Sedum 'Black Beauty', Sedum 'Purple Emperor', Sedum fabarium, Lysimachia ciliata Fire Cracker Ligularia dentata 'Britt Marie Crawford', Geranium pratense 'Dark Reiter'... The beginnings of a black garden...

It goes remarkably well with Carex testacea or with the all new Carex flageliffera 'Kiwi'.

This short-lived perennial Sweet William likes to grow in the sun or light shade in good garden soil. You can take cuttings and divide the clumps. The pleasure of giving.
