6-8" tall x 12-18" wide. Arctic Fire Dianthus (Dianthus deltoides) has
vibrant, fringed blooms and spicy fragrance. Dianthus (commonly known as
Garden Pinks) have delighted gardeners for centuries, it’s a mainstay
of cottage gardens and providing nectar for migrating hummingbirds in
spring. The low-spreading growth forms an ideal groundcover for
stabilizing slopes and edging perennial beds. Blooms make lovely
cuttings for nosegays and mini bud vases. The narrow, gray-green foliage
provides winter color and a platform for summer perennials. Provide
full sun and well-drained alkaline to neutral soil. Dianthus have low
water needs and are drought tolerant once established making them ideal
for rock gardens and xeriscaping. Plants tolerate afternoon shade in hot
climates. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and shear plants
lightly after flowering to promote tight, dense growth.
