Dianthus Cherry Vanilla
Add a ‘pop’ of color!
We love flowers that make you stop in your tracks. Not every flower does that. Dianthus Cherry Vanilla will!
Dianthus or Cottage Pinks are beloved flowers all over Europe and the USA. With their mini-carnation type flowers and strappy gray-green foliage you’ll find them in well-dressed borders all spring and into the summer.
Cherry Vanilla Dianthus is a shot of fresh color for these sentimental garden favorites. You can often find them in shades of pink, white and red but Cherry Vanilla is an eye-catching deep red flower with a light pink picotee edge that make the flowers really pop!
In late spring/early summer a flush of double flowers grows up over a low-growing mound of gray-green foliage. The flowers are double, so they have a sweet ruffle to them. They are also lightly fragrant with a spicy carnation scent.
After they finish their first flush of blooms it is easy to get them to bloom again later in the fall. All that you have to do is give them a quick cut when the initial blooms fade and then they will reenergize for a second round of blooms in the fall.
These are naturally low growers which makes them perfect for the front of the border or in a mixed container garden planting. Cherry Vanilla won’t melt in heat or humidity, either.
Deer won’t bother your pinks. They are low maintenance, drought tolerant, pollinator magnets and they make cute little cut flowers. With all of this going for them, don’t let another season go by without a pop of these in your garden!
