Dianthus barbatus ‘Sweet Coral’
Part of the ‘Sweet’ series of Dianthus, ‘Sweet Coral’ is the perfect addition to a cutting garden, cottage garden, or mixed flower bed. These beauties have an upright growth habit with salmon-coral flowers clustered atop strong stems. At maturity they grow 18-36” tall and 10-12” wide, and do not require staking. The sweetly fragranced blooms attract butterflies and other beneficial pollinators to the garden. ‘Sweet Coral’ blooms late winter, early spring, spring and autumn, and does not need to vernalize for first year bloom. It is very frost and heat tolerant (hardy to 0°F), and the Sunset Climate Zones are A2, A3, 1-24.
The fragrant and long-lasting blooms, grown on long straight stems are a perfect addition to a vase of mixed flowers from your garden. The beauty of this perennial caught the attention of the Royal Horticultural Society who awarded it their “Award of Merit” for its beauty and outstanding performance in the landscape. Don’t miss out on picking up a few of these outstanding plants while they last. We are currently growing Dianthus barbatus ‘Sweet Coral’ in 4.5” flats.
