More Information

Description A never-ending display of flowers, even in the heat! 'Paint the Town Fancy' dianthus from Proven Winners was developed so that even gardeners in hot climates could enjoy hundreds of sweet, brightly-colored carnation-like blooms. No need to worry about heat or drought with this tough perennial. This nifty sun-loving plant naturally grows as a neat little mound of blue-green foliage, but that gets completely covered with bright pink flowers featuring a unique red-eye 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. Details Botanical name: Dianthus 'Paint the Town Fancy'
Patent: USPPAF
Common name: Pinks, carnation, dianthus
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Part sun (4-6 hrs.day) to full sun (6+ hrs.day)
Height x width: 6-8" X 12-14"
Flower color: Bright pink with red eyes
Foliage color: Blue-green
Season of interest: Late spring-early summer
Uses: Alpine and rock, Container gardening, Cottage gardening, Edging, Erosion control, Ground cover, Massing, Rock garden, Slopes, Small spaces, Under planting.
How To Grow 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.

Disappointed

Have not grown to expected height and have had very few flowers

Hello! We're sorry to hear that you're disappointed in your dianthus. So many factors such as weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play when it comes to plant growth. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. Hope this helps! Keep tending to your new plants and you will see growth in time. Happy Gardening!

Protecting Dianthus plants from animals

Plants arrived perfectly protected. Only problem - it seemed that either something in the dirt or the fertilizer was attractive to chipmunks or squirrels because they kept digging down to feed on whatever it was, which was obviously stressing the plants. Tried 3 different animal repellents that didn't work, then burying mothballs (which the pests dug out and shoved aside). Finally sifted a pretty heavy dose of cayenne pepper around the plants which are finally (nearly a month in) beginning to thrive. Now have every confidence they will be a success.

Love all my 25 plants!

This was my first time ordering plants online and I will certainly do it again! The plants were packaged perfectly so there was no damage to them when they arrived. Most importantly, despite my not having a green thumb, they are looking amazing. They truly are “Great Garden Plants”!

We're thrilled to hear you're loving your new plants, Mary! We're sure your garden will be looking great this year and beyond. Let us know if you ever have any questions, we're happy to help. Happy gardening!
