Dianthus Firewitch Description

Dianthus 'Fireworks' is the ultimate in fragrance! Durable, hardy, easy to grow Drought Tolerant Ground Cover beckons for a spot in your perennial garden.

In late spring, hundreds of shocking magenta pink flowers contrast beautifully against evergreen silvery blue foliage. Flowers will often repeat again later in the summer when the weather turns cool.

This sun plant is a fine addition for your cut flower garden. Highly fragrant blooms last for days all the while adding a natural fragrance to almost any room of your home!

Since the foliage is evergreen, this is an excellent ground cover for the sun perennial garden and a perfect edging plant in front of your perennial border.

We love to pair this fragrant beauty with other evergreen ground covers like low growing Sedums. Use as a foreground planting to Daylilies, Coneflowers, or Knock Out Roses. 

Special Features: Butterfly Lovers, Cold Hardy, Cut Flower, Deer Resistant, Disease Resistant, Drought Tolerant, Easy Care, Evergreen, Fast Growing, Fragrance, Heat Tolerant, Pest Resistant,

Ideas and How-to's

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS

PLANTING GUIDE

Soil: Neutral to alkaline well drained loam or sand.
Light: Full sun is preferred but will tolerate part shade though the blooms might not be as prolific.
Water: Average water needs. Drought tolerant once established, but should be watered regularly during extended drought conditions.
Spacing: 12 inches
Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, timed release fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: Remove all the dead and fallen plant matter so that diseases do not overwinter in it. A four inch mulch layer of straw or pine boughs will help protect the soil temperature, and keep the frost from heaving the roots. Remove the mulch in spring when they begin actively growing again.
Maintenance & Pruning: Little to no pruning or maintenance needed. Deadheading is highly recommended to promote a re-flush of flowers. Clumps can be divided every 2 or 3 years to encourage better flower production.
