Dianthus - Fire Star

Hot Red and Frosty Green


The Dianthus Fire Star, Dianthus 'Fire Star' (PPAF), has vibrant red flowers with a dark red eye. 


The flowers provide a striking contrast as they appear on evergreen, glaucous grey-green foliage; the foliage gives off a spicy scent of cloves!  


The red flowers with a deeper crimson eye appear on stems rising slightly above the foliage mound to 8” tall; flowers bloom 3-5 per stem. 


 Flowering may continue sporadically throughout the summer.


This plant blooms the best in the early summer, however, it will rebloom in the fall if deadheaded.  It is a favorite as a border plant or in rock gardens.


'Fire Star' needs a sunny site with well-drained soil, but will tolerate some shade in the afternoon along with humidity.  


Regular watering during prolonged dry spells will be necessary.  However, this plant is tolerant of short periods of dryness.


'Fire Star' provides showers of cheerful, charming flowers that become a truly great addition to any perennial garden!
