(11”tall x 11”wide) There’s nothing old-fashioned about Scent First®
‘Romance’ Dianthus. The ruffled blooms of this Garden Pink unfurl in
late spring in shades of salmon pink with a crimson center and are bred
specifically for scent and compact habit. Dianthus makes a fantastic cut
flower, and the spicy, evocative fragrance is sure to encourage you to
cut a few of those sturdy stems for inside vases. Grow in well-drained,
alkaline to neutral soil in the front of a sunny bed or border or get
creative – Dianthus love cracks between paving stones or bricks. The
spiky, silvery blue foliage is attractive during the entire growing
season and will make a great contrast against yellow flowers, such as
coreopsis, as summer rolls on. ‘Romance’ Dianthus is deer resistant and
will re-bloom if deadheaded and fed after its initial spring bloom. A
terrific perennial choice for containers too.
