American Pie® Key Lime Pie Dianthus

Availability: Out of stock

New dreamy color for a Garden Pink, the Dianthus American Pie Key Lime Pie (Dianthus x Wp15 Pie41) is a pure white flower with a curious lime green eye! Spicy sweet-scented and smothering their mounds of silvery blue-green foliage! The swirling single row of overlapping petals are delightfully accented with toothy edges, creating unique details on every bloom!

Low-growing, compact mounds of spikey foliage, these Carnation-family members can be evergreen in mild winters, smothering themselves in pure white and green flowers for the delight of you and your butterflies! The long sturdy stems of the blooms call pollinators and are long-lasting both on the plant and in your spring bouquets! You’ll love bringing these unique Pinks indoors to enjoy their fragrance!

Key Lime Pie Dianthus are incredibly cold, heat and drought tolerant and adapt to a wide range of climates and conditions. Classic border plants, Pinks have been a garden favorite for generations! The long-lasting blooms keep returning after the spring flush with attentive deadheading.

Planting and Application:

Garden Pinks form dense mats that spill, creep and ramble over garden and planter edges, retaining walls and mingling throughout your garden beds as edging. Use as erosion control and groundcover on those hard-to-mow slopes and hillsides, or to ease the transition from lawn to garden, adding a formal and modern look to your landscape!

Key Lime Pie Dianthus are ideal-sized container plants to add cool, calm and collected mounds of soothing color, whether in bloom or not, look lovely when added to porch pots and seating area planters! Cut flower gardens, pollinator and modern borders gain year-round interest, and these classic Cottage garden plants seem to help tie everything together!

  • Pure White Toothed Petals & Lime Green Eyes
  • Silvery Blue-Green Mounding Foliage
  • Evergreen in Mild Winters
  • Spicy Fragrance & Pollinator Attractors!
  • Container Perennials & Specimen & Edging

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Dianthus are highly adaptable bed and border perennials and have been a garden standard for generations! Plant in a full sun to partial shade location, in moist well-drained soil and mulch the site well to insulate the mounds roots. Deadhead consistently to keep the blooms returning and clean up the mound in late fall after frost.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderate Fertility & Moisture
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Deadhead, Pinch for Fullness & Prune in Late Fall
