Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS( Diana Mix)
Diana Mix Dianthus, Dianthus
The dwarf pinks in this mix have extra large flowers in a variety of colors. They are free-blooming, easy to grow and great for sunny garden spots in need or fragrance and bright color.
These hybrid perennials form neat clumps of green, waxy, strap-like leaves. From late spring into midsummer, their short stems become covered with big, flattened flowers that are fragrant and have fine pinked edges. The blooms may be white, red, pink, burgundy or bicolored. 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. They are low-maintenance and have few pest and disease problems, though overwatering can cause crown and root rot. Enjoy them as bedding plants in containers or any garden with good light.
