Dianthus (5)

Bring a rainbow of colours to your garden with bright and bold Dianthus blooms. This family includes pinks, sweet Williams and carnations. Favourites of gardeners and florists alike, the majority of these flowers tend to be in shades of white, red, rose, pink and purple as well as bi-colour. Carnations may be the most well-known of the dianthus family, but all members share the notable blue-green foliage and delightfully notched and ruffled edges. All varieties of dianthus also share a wonderfully sweet and spicy fragrance, with some cultivars having a more pronounced aroma than others.

Nearly all dianthus share a love for full to partial sun and lightly enriched, loamy soil. They may be planted in either spring or fall, and have varying bloom times ranging from mid spring to early fall. These low maintenance perennials multiply readily. In addition,these flowers are deer resistant, drought tolerant, and make beautiful ground covers that help control soil erosion, particularly on slopes.

Dianthus come in a wide range of sizes and can be adapted to many garden uses. Their tolerance for dry soil makes them an excellent choice for xeriscaping and rock gardens. Plant them near walkways and entrances to enjoy their spicy fragrance. Lovely additions to cutting gardens, carnations in particular make beautiful bouquets. Pinks and sweet Williams add charm to any perennial flower bed and look especially enchanting in cottage and woodland gardens. All varieties of dianthus flowers invite birds and butterflies to your yard with their entrancing scent. Transform your space with these enchanting flowers.

    Fragrant Carnation Collection
    Fragrant Carnation Collection
    A FLORIST'S FAVORITE IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD! Carnations can be found in almost every storebought bouquet, and for good reason—when the other flowers in the arrangement are starting to wither, the carnations are usually still going strong. In fact, they usually last 2-3 weeks in a vase! Now you can have this cutflower powerhouse in your own garden and enjoy months of colour and fragrance indoors or out! This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties. Faganza A classic colour that never goes out of style. Double-toothed, lavender flowers look similar to carnations of old, but they fit right in to any modern landscape or container planting. Citrien Yellow, double-toothed blooms are the perfect complement to Faganza and look stunning when paired with blue hydrangeas. Cosmos Snow white flowers provide the perfect contrast to more colourful blooms. Also great as part of a moonlight container garden on the back deck or patio. Red Allure Eye-catching red carnation makes a statement wherever it's planted. Try it in a hanging basket, and view the visiting hummingbirds and butterflies at eye level. Orinoco Perhaps the most popular carnation colour, pink is said to symbolize friendship and even a mother's love. The blooms of this pink variety feature a lovely pattern of light and dark shades.more
