Dianthus gratianopolitanus

‘Electra’  I can’t stop using this exciting Dianthus! Not too short like many new varieties, ‘Electra’s’ scented 2” magenta-rose blooms deliver electric “pop” anywhere in the garden. Long-blooming Spring thru Fall with deadheading. Handsome weed-suppressing foliar mound. Cut back to 3” anytime, side-dress with compost and watch it spring back into action. Cut back to 3” again in late Fall. Best on the edge of a bed (drainage) or in a container (10”+ across). Long-lived. 12” x 14”.
