Dianthus Barbarini™ Mix Market Basket

Dianthus spp.

Also known as Pinks, perennial dianthus plants typically produce low-growing mounds of silvery-blue, grass-like foliage and single/double flowers with fringed or spotted petals. Some newer varieties are extremely fragrant and will bloom repeatedly throughout the growing season. Pinks make for wonderful edging and groundcover plants in rock gardens and at the base of roses, or near other, taller perennials. Barbarini™ Mix, also known as Sweet William, is an old-fashioned, cottage garden variety that is also a self-seeding biennial. This dwarf hybrid produces showy clusters of fragrant flowers in shades of lavender, purple, rose, and red, often with an attractive, contrasting eye. Plant in well-drained, alkaline soil amended with organic matter like Petitti Planting Mix. Water well after planting; maintain 1" of water, once a week, for the first year. Deadhead or shear, and fertilize, to encourage new blooms. Mulch 1-2" to suppress weeds and retain soil moisture. Divide in spring when necessary.
