Dwarf Hardy Carnation

The FLOW® series of pot carnations was bred to produce large flowers on a compact habit with uniform flowering. These blooms from spring until late summer and are completely hardy. Plants form a neat mound of grassy foliage smothered with fully double flowers. This selection features white flowers with dark pink edging on short sturdy stems held above attractive green foliage. Added bonus of a wonderful spicy-clove fragrance. Excellent for containers, rock gardens and borders. Drought tolerant and easy to grow. Prefers well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Good drainage is essential for winter hardiness. Evergreen. Bred in The Netherlands.
