The more sun the better
The easy-care light carnation prefers a location in full sun on not too moist, well drained and humus soil. The plant is particularly eye-catching in gravel gardens or in natural gardens. The plant, which grows up to 80 centimeters high, also comes into its own in perennial beds together with perennials such as santolina (santolina) or cornwort (Cerastium tomentosum). Since light carnations can get quite wide, you should not plant more than five to seven plants per square meter. The otherwise easy-care plant does not tolerate moisture, especially winter moisture.
Propagation takes place through seeds that are sown either as soon as they are ripe or in spring. However, the plant also readily and in large numbers seeds itself.
