Dianthus ‘Dragon Fruit’


Border Pinks

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.181.020


Border Pinks have been popular in gardens for centuries. This selection produces large, double, bright pink ruffled flowers with magenta markings. The flowers are held erect on long, upright stems over a compact mound of grey-green, grassy foliage. Flowers have a nice spicy fragrance. Attractive to butterflies. Great cut flower. Excellent for edging and in rock gardens. Deadhead regularly to encourage more buds to form. The flower petals of all types of Dianthus are edible. Plants require good drainage and are an excellent choice for hot dry sites or gravelly soils. Combines beautifully with other alpine plants. Evergreen. Introduced as part of the Fruit Punch™ series by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan. USPP#21894: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
