Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Ideal Crimson'( IDEAL SERIES)
Dianthus, Ideal Crimson Dianthus
A hybrid of sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) and its close cousin D. chinensis, this is indeed an ideal candidate for places where a compact, colorful, free-blooming annual or short-lived perennial is needed. Flat clusters of frilly-edged, unscented, lush crimson red flowers with delicate white eyes appear in spring and continue until summer heat sets in. The narrow, bright green foliage is evergreen in mild-winter areas.
With its compact habit, Ideal Crimson makes an excellent choice for bedding, edging, or containers. For optimum growth and flowering, provide it with full sun, bi-weekly fertilizer, and good drainage. Grow it as a winter annual in areas with hot summers and mild winters.
