A fresh look for a classic! Overlapping petals of deep red are edged in delectable creamy pink. With its intense fragrance and long bloom time, be sure to pick some to enjoy indoors. Quite an overachiever!

Everlast™ Dianthus are super tough reblooming performers! These extremely fragrant varieties bloom very early and stay in bloom until the hottest part of summer then rebloom as night temperatures drop in late summer. Who can resist Dianthus? The more the flowers are cut, the more they bloom. Blossoms sparkle against compact silvery blue-green foliage.
