A double-flowered Carnation with brilliant pink-to-red tones and a spicy, sweet fragrance that permeates the whole garden, Maraschino is prepared to become the darling of your sunny border, edging, foundation, and best containers!

Part of the Fruit Punch® series of highly fragrant, brightly colored Dianthus, Maraschino offers 1¼- to 1½-inch blooms that shade from a deep magenta center to deep pink petal tips. Neatly serrated and wonderfully scented, they are ideal for cutflowers of all kinds (boutonniere, anyone?!) as well as garden enjoyment. The first, and heaviest, show is in early summer. Often the blooms continue to appear intermittently all summer, but if you shear the plants back right after the first flowering, they will rebloom happily in early fall.

And even out of bloom, Maraschino has something to say. The foliage is slender and blue-green, quite intense and distinctive in the sunny garden. Just under a foot high and a bit wider, this dense mound of silvery-gray highlights is evergreen, holding its place for the blooms to come!

Maraschino grows best in loose, well-drained soil in full sun in all but the southern and western areas of its hardiness range. You will love its performance season after season! Zones 4-9.
