Dianthus General Information

Foliage remains evergreen in all but the coldest winters. Dianthus deltoides will be happiest in partial shade, especially in the south. They are at home covering banks, cascading around rocks or over walls, and edging borders. These lush mats flower in June and July. 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 and low maintenance beauties. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Dianthus Plant Care

Benefits from shearing back after first flush of blooms. Foliage is nearly evergreen, so do not cut back for winter. Prefers a loose and sandy alkaline soil. Can be divided in spring every 2-3 years
