Pinks grow best in soil that is loose and well drained. The prefer neutral to slightly alkaline PH, so applications of lime can help. They can be grown if full sun to part shades, but they will do best when soil is kept moist and they are not exposed to hot dry conditions. The evergreen foliage must be cleaned up in the fall to prevent disease and pests, cover with mulch in the winter to protect the foliage and then uncover promptly as the weather warms in spring. They offer a little challenge, but if you have the time they are worth it.
