'Classic Coral' is the long-awaited missing color of the FRUIT PUNCH® series. In early summer a splash of double, striking coral pink flowers is produced over a tight, compact mound of blue-green foliage. Members of the FRUIT PUNCH® series all share the following traits: semi double to double, fragrant flowers, and good heat and humidity tolerance. A quick shearing after flowering will encourage rebloom in early fall. FRUIT PUNCH® Dianthus are just the right size for the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
Deer resistant, low maintenance and drought tolerant, attracts butterflies, fragrant, cute cut flower-what more could one want in a perennial? The Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH® series delivers all that and more in your choice of four colors. Double flowers stand like mini carnations atop a short mound of evergreen foliage in early summer. A quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. Dianthus is just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
