DIANTHUS( GARDEN SPICE® PINK, GARDEN SPICE® SERIES)
Dianthus, Garden Spice® Pink
Give your garden a spicy little kick! The abundant, fragrant, salmon-pink flowers of this hybrid dianthus will make your mouth water. The double, carnation type flowers open atop shimmering blue-green stems and spiky foliage in spring, and continue sporadically through summer. They attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Well suited for annual beds, mixed borders, cottage gardens, and container planting, this tender perennial does best in sun and moist, well drained soil. Fertilize regularly and remove spent flowers to prolong bloom. Although very heat tolerant for a dianthus, in areas with severe summers it performs best as a winter annual.
