Dianthus barbatus Barbarini™ Red


Dwarf Sweet William

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.185.540


Sweet William is an old-fashioned cottage garden plant that usually grows as a self seeding biennial. This dwarf hybrid strain produces showy clusters of fragrant flowers with deep red petals. Terrific in containers or for edging borders. Developed to flower well even in the first year, then hopefully return for a second. Remove fading flowers to encourage more buds to form. Pruning plants back hard after blooming will encourage them to survive for another year. Self-sown seedlings may be moved in fall or early spring.
