Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Firewitch' // Dianthus x intermedia 'Rockin' TM Red
Hot Pink Firewitch Dianthus is a terrific little plant that keeps mounding wider from one root.

Snip off flowers for tiny cuts to bring inside (beautiful clove scent!) or once faded in the garden for reblooming. Rockin'TM Red Dianthus on the right has wider green foliage, and both are reblooming now.
Dianthus return each year and increase in size.

Daylilies are hybrids from Hemerocallis fulva, orange lily, and have Lirope-like "sword" foliage, called the "Perfect Perennial" for use in unattended landscapes. You can fit in a daylily anywhere, the foliage is complementary and plus, flowers in the summer when they are so needed!
What is a DAY LILY and how is it different from a REGULAR LILY?
Regular Lilies are florist and garden lilies -- Daylilies are garden lilies.
Don't cut on these - each flower opens for only about a day,
so there is frequently a new bloom.
They form a clump - more flower stalks every year.
These Buttered Popcorn reblooming fragrant daylilies flower in full sun on the south side of my house in a #1 trade gallon (3-quart) pot. The picture is beautiful but in person these are spectacular.
