Dramatic, rich red flowers that grab you from a distance. Flowers are held on strong stems above blue-green leaves.

Dianthus are among the best for providing color in late spring and early summer. The PRETTY POPPERS™ Series are semi-evergreen perennials and offer an abundance of red, pink, and white flowers; perfect for the front of the border.

Dianthus grow best in loose, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soils. Lime can be added to the soil if it is naturally acidic to raise the pH. Dianthus can be grown in full sun or part shade, but the foliage will not be as lush and fewer flowers will be produced if it is grown in hot, dry areas. Regular watering during prolonged dry spells will be necessary. However, they are tolerant of short periods of dryness.
