#ProPlantTips For Care

Best in full sun, Dianthus Garden Pinks prefer at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day for best results. Hardy in USDA growing zones 5 through 9, these are both cold and heat tolerant. Evergreen in the warmer growing zones, these may appreciate a bit of afternoon shade in the worst of the summer’s heat.

Plant in moderately fertile soil that is well-drained. Tolerant of rocky, gravel or sandy soils, imagine how well these will do in the pampered conditions in your garden!
Water regularly to establish young plants, and then after, these are quite drought tolerant!

Provide supplemental watering to protect your investment with additional watering during the summer heat and dimes of drought.

Deadhead or shear after the blooms have faded to ensure a second flush. Deer resistant and hardy, Dianthus are very low care and easy to grow!

Fragrance, beauty combined with versatility and hardiness make for an amazing combination! Add some gorgeous ruffled flowers to your garden this year with the attractive coral-red and white frills of Scent First® Coral Reef Dianthus from today!
