My favorite
I am a work-from-home professional in education. from NJ wrote on May 16, 2018

I bought a bag of this seeds early last summer just to give it a try. almost all of them budded and most of them all flowered last fall. I carelessly planted them throughout various parts of my garden. They all came back this year. They are beautiful just as what it described. I even transplanted one two weeks ago. It survived and flowered too. I am not a growers. I spend the least amount of time on gardens. These Dianthus are my favoriate, and the COLOR! I must give it a 5 star.

Indescribably vivid color
mesanger from CO wrote on June 10, 2015

I started two plants from seed and summered them in pots, and they gave me the sweetest magenta-violet blooms. Slipping them into the ground with enough time to settle before winter, I hoped they survived my Zone 5 cold. This spring they came back early and lush, and the two plants are covered with... no exaggeration... hundreds of blooms! No photo seems to do this color justice. It is simply smile-provoking! I wish I had planted more... though this season I am trying the Salmon version from the "Ideal" range. Thanks for this beauty!
