Description

The closest to a true-blue dianthus

Jazz up the dianthus bed with this richly colored, long-blooming 'Siberian Blues' Dianthus. From late spring well into fall, masses of lavender-blue blooms (each 1/2- to 1-inch across) arise in big clusters on tough, vigorous plants. Branching from the base, these 6- to 12-inch plants become incredibly dense, for even more flowers all season long.

Unlike some Garden Pinks, 'Siberian Blues' Dianthus won't melt out in the heat and humidity of summer. The rounded plants stay neat and compact, their blue-green foliage offering great contrast to the vibrant blue flowers. The perfect companion to pink Dianthus.

'Siberian Blues' Dianthus blooms the first year from seed and is very long-lived. Sow seed in early summer for bloom the following spring. Best performance in sun and well-drained, gritty soil.

Once you have grown this dianthus you'll always want this stunning unique beauty in your garden! 'Siberian Blues' is vigorous and heavy flowering and plants will persist for several years and have seeded out gently in my garden. Everyone loves and comments on this dianthus!

Healthy plant, beautiful flowers

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Seeds germinates well into a very healthy plant, The flowers are beautiful, almost neon. It takes a hard freeze to go dormant. It takes all weather conditions and different soils well, also tolerates part shade. The only issue I have had is that it is quite aggressive, spreading from the roots and seeds. The right spot for it, such as a border that won’t take tender plants would be great.

Pretty Little Flowers

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Bought these seeds a few years ago. Germinated fairly well. Planted plants on a little slope and don't mess too much with them except pull any weeds or grass in them. I won first place with flowers in dianthus class at county farm show!

Still good

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I ran out of steam last year and planted the year-old seeds this year. They germinated very well and are thriving despite the inadequate attention I have given them - same for the Dianthus "Sweetness" variety.
