Dianthus 'Black Cherry Frost'

Pinks

Plant Type: Perennial

This improved variety replaces ‘Black Cherry Wild’ in the FRUIT PUNCH® Dianthus series. ‘Black Cherry Frost’ has more consistent, formal flowers than its predecessor, and fills the void of dark red flowers in the series. 1¼in, rich, semi-double velvety red flowers have a fine, serrated, near white edge. Flower stems are strong, and are produced above the silvery blue foliage. Members of the Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH® series all share the following traits: fully double, fragrant flowers, and good heat and humidity tolerance. Flowers appear in early summer, and a quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. FRUIT PUNCH® Dianthus are just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
