Bred from more than one type of Dianthus in order to get the best of many worlds: colour, vigor, and heat tolerance. You are going to love the results! These are a vigorous, well-branched plants, reaching 40 to 50 cm (16 to 20 in) high (gigantic by most gardener standards!) and 30 to 35 cm (12 to 14 in) wide. Mounded and upright, very showy! This series will make a lovely container subject and it can hold its own in annual beds just fine, too.
Start seed 6 to 8 weeks before date of transplanting out in the garden. Cover seed with 6mm (1/4 in) of light loamy soil. Soil temperature should be 21 C (70 F). Seed should germinate in 7 to 15 days. Reduce temperature to near 12 C (55 F) after the seed sprouts for best results. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 25 cm (10 in) apart.
