Dianthus caryophyllus SuperTrouper™ Red White


Hardy Carnation

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.181.280


(‘KLEDP09103’) Carnations may be treated as annuals or short-lived perennials in the garden. Plants form a low mound of grassy grey-green leaves, bearing upright stems of fully double, florist-type flowers. This selection from the SuperTrouper™ series, our choice for Canada′s 150th Anniversary perennial, is white with red ‘maple leaf’ blotches. Wonderful spicy-clove fragrance. Excellent for cutting. Good drainage is essential for winter hardiness. Plants perform best in areas with cool summers. Divide clumps every second spring, or plant new ones to maintain vigour. Evergreen.
