I purchased a Devon Cottage dianthus last year (2020) from a local nursery. I paid double the price for the one purchased from the nursery. This dianthus bloomed all last summer, last fall, last winter, this spring, and so far this summer. I live in Zone 7 (Tennessee/Georgia border) and hopefully this beautiful flower will return for many years.
