Dianthus 'Memories': Plant to support dementia research

15 September, 2014

Dianthus ‘Memories’, a perfumed plant with a pure white bloom was bred by Plants Management Australia to support dementia research, with $1 from the sale of each plant going to Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation. 

Dianthus 'Memories' has a perfumed pure white bloom and shares many of the characterises of the modern dianthus plant including long flowering, sturdy stems and dry tolerance. It is the perfect gift, performing equally well in garden beds, containers or long lasting cut flower displays. 

The plant will be available for purchase in select retail outlets and nurseries nationally over the next few weeks. Click here to visit the Plants Management Australia website for further information about the plant including care and stockists.

"I couldn’t think of a better way to honour a loved one than with a beautiful flower such as Dianthus Memories.” – Ita Buttrose, Dementia Australia National Ambassador.
