Dianthus ''Paint the Town Magenta''

Pinks

  • Prized for its bright flower color and increased heat tolerance
  • Flowers completely cover the glaucous blue foliage when it's in peak
  • Single, vibrant magenta pink flowers and incredibly serrated petals
  • One of the earliest Dianthus to bloom
  • Flowers appear in early summer, and a quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall.
  • This is the perfect size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
