DIANTHUS( CONFETTI SERIES)
Confetti Pinks, Dianthus, Pinks
Members of the Confetti Series produce a profusion of small, serrated blooms above low growing, tufted, evergreen foliage. The popular cultivar 'Confetti Carmine Rose' has magenta-pink flowers stenciled with maroon at their centers and edges. Flowering peaks in late spring and early summer and repeats later if plants are deadheaded. The handsome, narrow leaves are gray-green.
These pinks prefer sun or partial shade, but excessive shade will cause legginess and reduced bloom. Plant them in well drained, neutral soil in mixed borders, rock gardens, patio niches, containers, walls, and cottage gardens. These hardy plants will self-sow freely, making them ideal for naturalizing.
These seed-grown selections have parentage derived from the Eurasian herbaceous perennial Dianthus deltoides.
