Dianthus Shooting Star, Dianthus 'Shooting Star' PP#14,549, is another wonderful addition to the "Star" series of Dianthus!  Could this be the best one yet? We think so!

'Shooting Star' forms neat and compact evergreen mounds that remain attractive all season long.  

The blue-green foliage is covered with hundreds of magenta purple flowers in early spring, and again in early fall after dead-heading.

The delightful spicy clove fragrance is an added bonus!  

Dianthus 'Shooting Star' is a small, cushion forming perennial that needs a sunny site with well-drained soil; will tolerate some shade in the afternoon along with humidity.  

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.

'Shooting Star' provides a profusion of cheerful, charming, bright magenta purple flowers that provides a striking mound of color!
