Special Attributes

Easy to grow and long blooming, the Firewitch Dianthus forms a carpet of attractive ice-blue evergreen foliage that is literally covered in heavenly fragrant, clove-scented flowers with striking, brilliant magenta-pink petals that are serrated around the edges. If the flowers are deadheaded the plant will rebloom. Excellent for sunny patio gardens and around other outdoor living spaces where the fragrance and cute flowers can be enjoyed from up close.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a dense mound 6 to 8 inches tall and about a 12 to 18 inches wide, the Firewitch Dianthus is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or in mass plantings in sunny landscape and borders and on slopes. Its smaller size makes it an excellent candidate as a solo or mixed with other plants in pots, planters and other containers. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, cottage gardens, butterfly garden, sunny perennial gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  12 inches apart for mass plantings; 30 inches apart for space between plants 





Cultural Preferences and Planting & Care Tips

Dianthus are very easy to grow in most any moist to somewhat dry well-drained soil of average to low fertility and full to mostly sun. Some shade is tolerated however flowering will be diminished in too much shade. We suggest at least 5 hours of direct sunlight for best flowering and overall performance. Plant with the top of the root ball even with ground level. Care and maintenance are minimal. Spent flowers can be deadheaded. Feed in spring with an organic plant food.
