The Dianthus FRUIT PUNCHâ„¢ series delivers all that and more in your choice of four colors. Double flowers stand like mini carnations atop a short mound of evergreen foliage in early summer. A quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. Dianthus is just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
