    I just bought what was labelled as 'Flashing Lights' Dianthus, but the flowers (Although there are only two at the minute) are orange and everywhere I search for this plant, it says the flowers are a reddy pink colour? It definitely looks the same as it should except for the colour of the flowers.

    Anyone else got an orange 'Flashing Lights'??

    I grow ''flashing lights'' and it is not orange - there is another one called ''Brilliant - or Brilliance'' and although it also has reddish flowers they are a more orangey red. ''Flashing lights'' is a deep pinky red.

    Having just read that back, it sounds a bit like a double dutch tongue twister :rolleyespink:
