‘Sweetie Pie’ is the perfect choice if you tend to gravitate toward feminine colors for your garden. The true pink, semi-double flowers are 1 ¼ - 1 ½” wide with a subtle darker pink eye. ‘Sweetie Pie’ is incredibly floriferous: the flowers totally cover the silvery blue-green foliage when it’s in bloom. 

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.
