DIANTHUS 'Ideal Select Violet'( IDEAL SELECT SERIES)
Ideal Select Violet Dianthus
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Fragrant, colorful flowers cover these short-lived, bushy perennials from spring to summer. Pinks in the Ideal Select series are crosses between China pinks (Dianthus chinensis) and sweet William (Dianthus barbatus). They have compact, uniform habits and produce dense clusters of small flowers with pinked edges that may be white, red, rose, raspberry, violet or salmon, depending on the cultivar. Deadheading will prolong blooming.
Pinks grow best in full sun and prefer average to fertile soil with good drainage. These fine bedding plants make a great addition to sunny flower gardens, containers or rock gardens.
