A beautiful new addition to the FRUIT PUNCH® series! This Dianthus produces large, florist quality, fully double, raspberry pink blossoms about 1¾ inches wide. Each serrated petal is framed by a razor thin white edge. Unlike other flowers that might fade, 'Raspberry Ruffles' maintains its raspberry pink color throughout its bloom season. A polished, upright habit with blue-green foliage completes this perfect package. Flowers appear in early summer, and a quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. FRUIT PUNCH® Dianthus are just the right size to edge 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.
