Dianthus Firewitch


Border Pinks

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.180.520

Shear plants back lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact habit. Plants require good drainage and are an excellent choice for hot dry sites or gravelly soils. Combines beautifully with other low alpine plants. Attractive to butterflies. Evergreen. Selected as the 2006 PERENNIAL PLANT of the YEAR.
