Pink blushed petals form swirling ‘skirts’ edged in deep maroon encircling the complementing eye zone. Detailed patterns on each blossom are refreshing and delightful.

Who can resist Dianthus? The more the flowers are cut, the more they bloom. Blossoms sparkle against compact silvery blue-green foliage.

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

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.
