Classy and Sassy Dianthus Classic Coral

  • Beautiful, Scented Peachy Pink Coral-Colored Flowers
  • Evergreen
  • Deer, Drought and Salt Tolerant
  • Adored By Beneficial Pollinators

Dianthus or Cottage Pinks are beloved flowers that you'll find in gardens from Maine to Alaska. With their dainty gray-green foliage and flowers linke mini-carnations, they fill in many a summer border.

Dianthus Classic Coral (Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH 'Classic Coral' PP30048), is a hot new color for these beautiful garden favorites. Often found in shades of pinks, reds and whites, Classic Coral is a rich peachy shade that really stands out.

In late spring/early summer a bevy of double flowers springs up over the tight mound of gray-green foliage. The flowers are extravagantly ruffled and lightly fragrant with the scent of cloves. After they finish their first flush of blooms, a quick shear will allow them to re-energize for a nice rebloom in the fall.

These low growers are perfect for the front of the border, mass planting in flower beds or as the focal point of a lovely container garden. Classic Cloral is very tolerant of heat and humidity, more so than many other pinks. It won't melt during the dog days of summer.

Deer stay away from pinks. They are low maintenance and drought tolerant. They attract butterflies and beneficial pollinators and even make cute little cut flowers.

I mean, WOW! They offer so much. Don't let another season go by without ordering some of these long-awaited missing colors for your own, from our experts at Nature Hills.
