DIANTHUS 'Super Trooper Lilac On Purple'( SUPER TROOPER SERIES)
Dianthus, Super Trooper Lilac on Purple Dianthus
Easy to grow and long-blooming, dwarf hybrid carnation 'Super Trooper Lilac on Purple' features striking, multi-colored flowers which bloom continuously from late spring through midsummer. Appearing most heavily in spring, the double flowers are purple and magenta-pink with petal edges thinly edged in white. They are borne on short, sturdy stems atop neat clumps of linear, waxy blue-green foliage.
Grow this charming short-lived perennial in full to part sun and fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Offering good drought resistance, it is intolerant of soggy conditions and may rot if overwatered. Prompt removal of faded flower stems encourages heavier reblooming. ‘Super Trooper Lilac on Purple’ is a fine choice for bedding, edging or accent in containers and well-drained mixed borders. Its bright blooms also make lovely, long-lasting cut flowers.
