Common Name: Dianthus (Sweet William, Carnation, Pink, Pinks)
Latin Name:Dianthus spp.

The Dianthus is high in saponins and could cause gastrointestinal upsets, but it can be given as a very small part of a varied diet. You should ensure that other plants that contain saponins are not fed at the same time.
