Dianthus plumarius

A continuously MASSIVE BLOOMER from Spring to the end of Fall when you should cut Mr. “Hercules” back to 4” tall  so he can rest – because left to his own devices he’d probably implode from exhaustion. Sweetly scented, ruby-eyed, single white 2” blooms almost smother the attractive, dense, silvery blue foliage. To 20” x 20”. Dianthus love drainage, so plant them at the edge of a bed or in a container (3+ gal). Long-lived. Side-dress with a bit of compost once or twice a year to keep him fat and happy! Deer resistant!
