Plant Features

Scent First™ Passion Dianthus Plants combine the rich, spicy scent that this series is known for, with one of the most intense and true reds that you will find on any variety. The smoky-green, grassy, compact mound of foliage is the perfect base for the distinctive red blossoms rising above it. If red is your color, you'll be passionate about this one! Dianthus thrive in sunny locations with well-drained soils. Light afternoon shade can be helpful in the very southern gardens. Drought tolerant once established, they are perfect for balconies, rock gardens and gardens with sandy soil. Butterflies are attracted to these plants.

Outstanding quality

I love these flowers for their fragrance and colors. This one flowered immediately and doesn't disappoint. The color is a deep red with a hint of pink. I have them on my balcony. As with everything else I've purchased here, the quality is excellent.
