Dianthus Star™ Single ‘Neon Star’


Whetman Star Pinks

USDA Zone: 4-9

This collection is considered the best in Dianthus genetics with attractive, mounding foliage, excellent vigour and heat tolerance.

This selection forms a low, grassy cushion of grey-green leaves, bearing upright stems of deep magenta-pink single flowers with a spicy clove fragrance. Drought tolerant once established. Shear lightly after blooming. Flowers may be attractive to butterflies. Evergreen. This selection may well prove to be hardy to Zone 3 or colder, but excellent drainage is essential.
