There are so many reasons to love Green Trick Dianthus. While the name is less than desirable (I don’t know about you, but to me it sounds more like a rare sickness than a flower), it is actually a member of the carnation family, and quite adorable. I have been plugging it into a ton of arrangements lately.
Dianthus’s soft, low profile makes it the perfect, unexpected filler to showcase the beauty of more showy blossoms, but it also has a modern, sculptural feel simply in a vase on its own.

This gorgeous emerald flower also lasts for weeks, which means I get to spend time doing other things besides tending to high-maintenance flower arrangements. I’ve found that it goes especially well in these new containers I got on a recent trip to Los Angeles.
