Enjoy two seasons of bloom every year from this member of the popular Fruit Punch® series of Dianthus! Cranberry Cocktail sports large, fully double, ruffled deep red to magenta blooms first in early summer, then again in early fall. Marvelously fragrant, they are delightful in the garden, the vase, and the buttonhole!

A very gardenworthy Carnation with dense, upright gray-green foliage held below the bright blooms, Cranberry Cocktail adds a new color to the flower range of Dianthus. These blooms appear to have some blue tones beneath the red, and they stand out brilliantly in any setting. Fully 2 inches wide (quite large by Dianthus standards!), they are petal-packed and frilly. So lovely!

The first, and heaviest, bloom occurs in early summer in most climates. If the flowers are cut or sheared promptly, they will return for an encore in early fall, just when the garden needs a fresh injection of color. And the gray-green foliage will remain evergreen through the toughest winters!

This low-growing, neatly mounded plant reaches just 8 to 10 inches high and spreads up to 14 inches wide. Try it in the front of the foundation or sunny border. Better yet, bring it onto the deck in containers. And be sure to plant extra -- you will want plenty for cutting!

Fragrant, bright, and long-lasting, this easy-care Dianthus is certain to become one of your garden favorites. Zones 4-9.
