Dianthus
'Bumbleberry Pie'

Brilliant 2” neon flamingo-pink flowers with a crimson eye are held on short and strong stems, making this one of the best “pinks” for a long lasting cut flower. The attractive evergreen blue-green foliage forms a dense mound to 12” high, with an endless array of fragrant, butterfly-attracting, flowers creating a blaze of pink from Spring thru Fall. This carnation is especially cold hardy and drought tolerant. Perfect for a container or along the edge of a bed. Not fussy about types of soil as long as there is good drainage. Needs very little Summer water once established. Trim in Winter to neaten. Deadheading prolongs flowering. Deer resistant.
