Nonstop Bold Summer Color
Bright watermelon-pink petals are brushed with just a hint of frosty white on fringed tips. Large fragrant flowers with continuous flowering from late spring through fall, the EverBloom™ Series is aptly named! Dianthus have ageless appeal, delightful in mixed borders, cutting, and butterfly gardens. The EverBloom™ Series of Dianthus are densely branched with strong, short flower stems and bold color. A rock garden favorite, slow-spreading ground cover, edger or front of the border charmer, it completes its must-have status with its alluring fragrance. Who can resist Dianthus? The more the flowers are cut, the more they bloom. Blossoms sparkle against compact silver blue-green foliage.

Dianthus General Information

Foliage remains evergreen in all but the coldest winters. 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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Dianthus Plant Care

Shear off old flowering stems and approximately 1/3 of the foliage after blooming. Foliage will quickly recover and look nice, even into winter. Prefers loose and sandy alkaline soils. Can be divided in spring every 2-3 years.
