Dianthus Bumbleberry Pie
Delicious color on a new hybrid pink!
Dianthus, or Pinks, have been cottage-garden staples since there have been cottages to have gardens around. These kissing cousins of the carnation are equally as beautiful and scented, catching the eye in the garden as well as the nose.
Bumbleberry Pie Dianthus is from the new line of hybrids out of the United Kingdom’s most prestigious breeder of garden pinks. They have starred at the Oscar’s of the horticultural scene – the RHS Chelsea Flower Show - and have won the high honor of the RHS Award of Garden Merit. But those are just a couple of the reasons to love this new introduction. Let us give you a few more:
- Extra-large single blooms in a saturated rose-pink with a vivid hot-pink center
- Sturdy, long stems don’t flop from the weight of the flower
- Perfect for cutting with a long vase life
- Great for containers, borders and beds
- Both cold and drought tolerant
- Excellent garden performance all the way to zone 5 (-20 degrees)
Whether your garden is cottage, rustic or very modern, this clean perennial flower will shine in your landscape. The flowers are edible, so work it into your vegetable garden. They are fantastic for picking, so put a few in your cutting garden. They look great en masse, so try a big bed of them. Their silver foliage looks great with evergreens.
