Fragrance and bright colors combine on this charming Carnation to fill your cool-season containers and garden beds with beauty!

These double-flowered blooms open a pleasing shade of pink, heavily edged in dark burgundy. The pattern may remind you of a clock face -- the original name for this Carnation was Siskin Clock, and you can see why! Very sweetly scented (the fragrance is often compared to cloves), the blooms last a long time, aging to pure white with deep pink to red edges. So fun to see them in all stages of changing color!

'Raspberry Swirl' is a low-growing, compact sun-lover. The foliage is needle-thin and blue-green, keeping the plant attractive long past bloomtime. This is a great choice for containers of all kinds, or as edging along a garden path or driveway. It makes a fine front-of-the-border standout, regaling passersby with its rich colors and evocative scent!

And Dianthus is famously easy to grow. Give it well-worked, enriched soil with good drainage, plenty of sunshine, and you're off and running! Enjoy 'Raspberry Swirl' for many seasons to come! Zones 5-9.
