Ruffled fragrant globes in velvety cranberry-red shades are occasionally speckled with pink. Petals trimmed in white stand out giving each flower a full rounded shape much like tiny ruffled petticoats swirling throughout its gray-green foliage.

Dianthus Odessa® Pierrot is a versatile perennial at home in mixed borders, containers, butterfly, heirloom and cutting gardens. A sun-loving beauty! The more the flowers are cut, the more they bloom. With their compact habit, they will tuck easily into any sunny location.

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.

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.
