Flower power for dementia research

Inspired by her own personal connections to dementia, Carolyn Whetman developed a new form of Dianthus plant to help raise funds and awareness for dementia research.

The beautiful Dianthus ‘Memories’ is a plant for all outdoor spaces, as it grows happily in pots as well as larger gardens as a tough ground cover.

Since its release in 2014, Dianthus ‘Memories’ has contributed more than $56,000 to dementia research, as part of a partnership between Plants Management Australia and the Dementia Australia Research Foundation.

For every Dianthus ‘Memories’ sold in Australia, 50c is donated to support dementia research. Look out for it at garden centres and garden outlets across the country, and you can show your support by planting your own memories!
