Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DIANTHUS 'Raspberry Parfait'
Dianthus, Pinks, Raspberry Parfait Pink
China pink ‘Raspberry Parfait’ creates a show-stopping display with its striking raspberry red and light pink flowers which resemble small bullseyes. A member of the Super Parfait Series, it forms a rounded mound of linear, somewhat grass-like, blue-green foliage. Numerous single, lightly fragrant flowers appear on short, sturdy stems from late spring through midsummer. Each flower is light pink with petals edged in dark pink, and bears a distinct, central “eye” of raspberry red.
Valued for their colorful, prolific flowers, China pinks are short-lived perennials which are commonly treated as annuals. Plant them in full to part sun and fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Avoid soggy conditions and overwatering, as these may cause the plants to rot. Shear back faded flower stems regularly to encourage heavier blooming. China pinks make fine accents in container compositions, and are lovely when massed at the front of mixed beds and borders.
