Dianthus 'Coral Reef'

Pinks

Plant Type: Perennial

Large frilly, fully double blossoms are a rich coral color with delicately fringed, light pink to white edges. Though the flower color lightens a bit as the flowers age, they remain an attractive shade of coral rose until they are fully spent. Blooms mid summer.

The flowers are complemented by the glaucous grey-blue foliage that forms a uniform, rounded, densely compact clump and remains attractive all season.

As the series name SCENT FIRST implies, the beautiful blossoms have a strong, spicy fragrance which is even more noticeable when you cut them for your fresh bouquets. Try adding a few to your combination planters this spring.
