DIANTHUS( SUPER TROOPER SERIES)
Super Trooper Dianthus
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The dwarf hybrid carnations of the Super Trooper series are small to medium-sized plants that come in an especially wide array of flower colors, some with fragrant blossoms. They are free-blooming, easy to grow and are typically early season flowering.
These hybrid, short-lived perennials form neat clumps of green, waxy, strap-like leaves. From early spring onward, their short stems become covered with big, single or double (extra petals) flowers ranging in color from pinks and reds to purples, orange, yellow and peach. Deadheading will encourage further bloom but the first flush is always the heaviest.
Grow Dianthus in full to partial sun and any well-drained garden soil with a slightly alkaline pH. They are low-maintenance and have few pest and disease problems, though overwatering can cause crown and root rot. Enjoy them as bedding plants in containers or any garden with good light.
