Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Arctic Star'
Arctic Star Dianthus, Hybrid Pinks
Tufted mounds of gray-green foliage create a pretty background for the white blossoms of ‘Arctic Star.’ The fragrant, fully double flowers appear from late spring to early summer and have sharply pinked petals edges. The spent flowers should be removed to encourage continued bloom. Where winters are mild, the mounds of tidy foliage will remain evergreen.
Grow Dianthus in full to partial sun and any well-drained garden soil with a neutral to alkaline pH. They are low-maintenance, easy to grow and ideal for cottage gardens or any perennial garden with good light. Their flowers also make long-lasting cut flowers.
