Dianthus Coconut Punch
Dianthus Coconut Punch, Dianthus 'Coconut Punch' PPAF, will add some "punch" to your landscape border!
This fragrant perennial produces 1.5" to 2" double blooms that are a deep red color, and these blooms are marked with white blotches on the centers of each petal.
As the flowers of Dianthus 'Coconut Punch' PPAF mature, the white blotches expand and the red color lightens to wine, forming a ring around each petal.
The grey-green foliage forms a grassy looking clump that is just the right size for the front of the flower border or in combination containers.

Regular watering during prolonged dry spells will be necessary. However, they are tolerant of short periods of dryness.
These fragrant, spicy dove-like flowers look wonderful as a border plant, rock gardens, along walks or paths, for edging and a definite in cottage gardens.
For a splashy bold color all summer, plant this 'Coconut Punch' as a wide-spreading ground cover!
