Dianthus barbatus 'Rockin' Red'

Upright stems of lightly fragrant, lacy, vivid red single flowers.

A hybrid strain of dianthus which is a true multi-use plant, excellent for massed bedding, growing in the perennial border or in mixed containers and tubs. This selection is mid-sized, with upright stems of lightly fragrant, lacy, vivid red single flowers. Blooms in spring, again in summer and once again in the fall. Remove fading flowers to encourage more buds to form. Although hardy into Zone 5, plants may also be treated as bedding annuals since they flower well during the first year.
