'Firewitch' Dianthus makes it easy to see how Dianthus earns its common name, Garden Pinks. This plant was the 2005 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year. Dianthus make fantastic perennial plants for sunny spots, particularly in rock, alpine, or crevice gardens where their bright flower colors contrast spectacularly with natural browns and greys. They prefer well-drained soil, and are fairly drought tolerant once established. Flowers have almost a feathered appearance to their petal structure, with a soft, silky texture. Deadheading dianthus will encourage further blooms, and plants can be dug and divided in the autumn or the spring. Ensure adequate moisture is provided to establish new roots.
