& Maintenance Tips

Dianthus thrives in fertile, fast draining soil.  It should be watered 2-3 times a week until it becomes established.  After that point, a weekly watering will be adequate to grow great looking dianthus.  Worn-out flowers should be removed promptly to promote more blooms.  This plant can produce richly fragrant flowers in the spring and summer.  When purchasing dianthus, you should look for plants with clear green or grayish green foliage.  Many plants will be in flower when you purchase them, most will at least be budded.  Be sure to look for other great colors such as rose, white and mix when purchasing your spring, summer or fall plants.
