Dianthus Fire and Ice
White Ringed Raspberries
Dianthus Fire and Ice, Dianthus 'Fire and Ice', displays a rich, deep pink raspberry color. It is a stunning and fragrant 1-1½" flower that is splashed with light pink dots and trimmed with nearly smooth cool white picotee edging.
‘Fire and Ice’ is unlike some dianthus in that it has nearly smooth edged petals. It offers a profusion of flowers with a lovely sweet fragrance that will attract butterflies!
The grey-green foliage of this dianthus, and its rounded compact habit, make it a fabulous plant for borders, in mass, or containers.
Add a layer of mulch to protect the evergreen foliage in colder climates, but once the weather becomes warmer, remove the mulch. This will prevent root rot.
‘Fire and Ice’ needs a sunny site with well-drained soil, but will tolerate some shade in the afternoon along with humidity. Regular watering during prolonged dry spells will be necessary. However, this plant is tolerant of short periods of dryness.
The charming flowers look wonderful as a border plant, rock gardens, along walks or paths, for edging and a definite in cottage gardens. ‘Fire and Ice’ provides showers of cheerful raspberry colored flowers that are dappled in pink. You can enjoy them in early spring, and again in early fall!
