Dianthus Star Single™ Stargazer

Item #38161


Fragrant, Colorful, and Reblooming!

Strong clove aroma and pretty "pinked" petal edges!

Are you growing the Whetman Pinks yet? This British series from "the" name in Dianthus is just about the most flower-happy, low-maintenance set we have ever grown, and we highly recommend every variety they offer! This season we are proud to have Stargazer available, a gorgeous white-and-maroon cultivar that stands in beautiful constrast to all the pinks and reds of other Carnations.

Stargazer is such a pleasure. The first wave of blooms arises in spring in most climates, sitting a few inches above the blue-green foliage. Redolent of cloves, the single blooms are "pinked" around the petal edges, as if with shears, and each white petal boasts a maroon splash near the base. Long-lasting and bright, these flowers draw the eye in garden and container, making all the colors around them glow a little more intensely. And they are wonderful cut-flowers for a small bouquet on the breakfast table or office desk -- not to mention their signature glory, the buttonhole!

Just 4 to 6 inches high and not much wider, this perennial packs a lot of punch into very little space. After the first blooms begin in fade, shear them back and within a few weeks you may be rewarded by a second flowering! Very tolerant of adverse weather, this Garden Pink endures heat and cold, wind and rain, without dropping a leaf. Expect it back for many seasons! Zones 5-9.
