Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS( IDEAL SERIES)
Hybrids of sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) and its close cousin D. chinensis, these are indeed ideal candidates for places where a compact, colorful, free-blooming annual or short-lived perennial is needed. Flat clusters of frilly-edged, unscented, five-petaled flowers appear in spring and continue until summer heat sets in. Purple, pink, red, white, and pictoee varieties are available. The narrow, bright green foliage is evergreen in mild-winter areas.
With their compact habit, Ideal dianthus make an excellent choice for bedding, edging, or containers. For optimum growth and flowering, provide them with full sun, bi-weekly fertilizer, and good drainage. Grow them as winter annuals in areas with hot summers and mild winters.
