Dianthus 'Paint the Town Fuchsia' Description

High performance, even in the heat! 'Paint the Town Fuchsia' dianthus from Proven Winners was developed so that even gardeners in hot climates could enjoy hundreds of sweet, brightly-colored carnation-like blooms. This nifty sun-loving perennial naturally grows as a neat little mound of blue-green foliage, but that gets completely covered with vivid pink flowers in early summer when it blooms. It has true flower power, and its darling little flowers are as lovely in the garden as they are in a small arrangement indoors.

Special features: deer resistant, long blooming, cut flower, sun-loving, rock gardens, Proven Winners.

Soil: Dianthus aren't particularly fussy about soil, though they do require good drainage.
Light: Full sun is preferred; can grow in part shade, though the blooms will not be as prolific.
Water: Average water needs. Drought tolerant once established, but should be watered regularly during periods of hot, dry weather.
Spacing: 12 inches
Fertilizing: Nothing special required; one application of garden fertilizer in early spring is sufficient.
Winterizing: Remove all the dead and fallen plant matter to prevent the risk of rot or damage. Evergreen perennial may look a bit tatty coming out of harsh winters, but will recover as spring begins.
Maintenance & pruning: Little to no pruning or maintenance needed. Though deadheading is not required, it will encourage additional flower production. Cut blooms as desired to use in arrangements.
