This color brings a new and unique addition to the series. Incredibly vibrant fuchsia pink, double flowers have deep red eyes and heavily serrated petals. The flowers are a little larger than most of the other members of the series at 1½ -2in across. Steel blue foliage complements the bright flower color well and remains a focal point even when the plant is not in bloom. Members of the Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH® series all share the following traits: fully double, fragrant flowers, and good heat and humidity tolerance. Flowers appear in early summer, and a quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. FRUIT PUNCH® Dianthus are just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
Deer resistant, low maintenance and drought tolerant, attracts butterflies, fragrant, cute cut flower—what more could one want in a perennial? The Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH® series delivers all that and more in your choice of four colors. Double flowers stand like mini carnations atop a short mound of evergreen foliage in early summer. A quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. Dianthus is just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
