Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Frosty Fire'( Allwoodii Alpinus Group)
Allwood's Pink, Frosty Fire Pink
Plants in the Dianthus Allwoodii group are compact, semi-evergreen, cushion-forming perennials resulting from crossing Dianthus plumarius (cottage pink) with perpetual-flowering carnations. The cultivar 'Frosty Fire' bears many clove-scented, ruffled, double, vivid red flowers in late spring and early summer above mounds of grassy, silvery-blue, evergreen leaves. Sporadic rebloom may occur in summer and early fall.
Preferring full sun and well-drained, neutral soil, this pink is well suited to rock gardens, border fronts, or containers. It needs division every 2 or 3 years to maintain its vigor.
