Dianthus General Information:

Dianthus are garden classics, appearing in many shapes and colors, most with blue/green or blue frosted quill-like foliage. Long blooming, perfect for small bouquets-most are fragrant. A cottage garden is not complete without several Dianthus. All are heat tolerant and low maintenance beauties.

Dianthus Plant Care:

Deadheading and picking flowers for indoors will prolong blooming. Do not shear foliage. Prefers a loose and sandy alkaline soil. Can be divided in spring every 2-3 years.
