'Raspberry Swirl'

A mesmerizing selection featuring palest pink blooms with a deep maroon picotee edge and blood-red eye. The color and design make this variety look more like a painting than a flower! In Spring, a never-ending parade of the edible blooms on 8” stems seem to float above a 7” tall by 2’ wide, dense evergreen mound of bluish-green foliage. If deadheaded, plants often rebloom in the Fall. One of the easiest plants to get going and care for, Dianthus are also drought tolerant, cold hardy and heat tolerant, insect and disease resistant and a favorite of butterflies. An excellent groundcover for a sunny spot. It also makes a showy potted plant, needs minimal clean-up, and tends to live for a long time. Deer resistant.
