Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Brilliant Star' PP13025
Brilliant Star Dianthus, Hybrid Pinks
The colorful and fragrant ‘Brilliant Star’ produces abundant flowers all season, if provided good care and regular deadheading. This exceptional pink was bred in Dawlish, Devon, England by John Whetman and is a cross between Dianthus ‘Whatfield Cyclops’ and an unnamed pollen parent.
Its dark green strappy leaves are evergreen and form spreading, low-growing mounds. From early summer to frost, it produces fragrant white blossoms with burgundy centers and jagged pinked edges. Deadheading will encourage further bloom but the first flush is always the heaviest.
Grow Dianthus in full to partial sun and any well-drained garden soil with a neutral to alkaline pH. This is a low-maintenance perennial with few pest and disease problems, though overwatering can cause crown and root rot. It is carefree and ideal for bedding, containers or any perennial garden with good light.
