Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Firewitch'

Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Firewitch'

Perennial Plant of the Year 2006

Garden Pink

Zone 4 - 9

This low growing 'Cheddar Pink' forms a dense mat of blue, evergreen foliage.  It is set with brilliant blooms that have been variously described as hot pink, magenta or purple red.  No matter how you describe this flower it will add vivid colour to your garden late spring to early summer and sporadically throughout the season, particularly again in the fall.  Deadheading will encourage reblooming.  When it appears to have finished flowering shear it right back to the foliage.  This will encourage reblooming as well as make the plant look much better.

Perfect for the front of the border and rock garden --- or plant it along a pathway or in a container where you can enjoy it's enticing clove-like sent.  

Like virtually all Dianthus, 'Firewitch' prefers a sunny location, in well-drained soil.  Avoid overwatering and over fertilizing.  'Firewitch' performs best when the soil is on the lean, dry side. HEIGHT: 20-25 cm SPREAD: 30-40 cm
