DIANTHUS 'Dynasty Pink Magic'

Image of Dianthus 'Dynasty Pink Magic' (DYNASTY SERIES)

Family

Caryophyllaceae

Botanical Name

DIANTHUS 'Dynasty Pink Magic'( DYNASTY SERIES)

Plant Common Name

Dynasty Pink Magic Dianthus

General Description

A new and unique take on an old-fashioned biennial (or short-lived perennial), this hybrid of Dianthus barbatus (sweet William) bears heads of lightly fragrant, carnation-like flowers that mature from white to pale pink to rose. Produced 3 to 4 months after sowing on strong upright stems clad in narrow dark green leaves, they make an ideal cut flower.

Frost tolerant and requiring minimal maintenance, Dynasty dianthus appreciate a home in full sun and well drained, neutral soil. They are at their best in cool conditions and work well as winter annuals in mild climates. Use them in cottage gardens or containers or as a backdrop for other bedding plants.
