DIANTHUS b. x ‘Red Picotte’ (Carnations and Pinks)



This genus holds many of the oldest cultivated plants of the Western World. Many of the species are from Europe and Asia and found their way into gardens at an early date, where selection and hybridizing began. Virtually all of today’s varieties are low-growing plants. Most have fragrant flowers and they cut well. Many have notched petals. Deadheading prolongs flowering for most types. Foliage is usually blue-gray. Full sun with average soil on the sweet side is best.  white/red LSP-ESU 8-12”H x 8-12”W Large clusters of frilly bicolor flowers. Dark burgundy red centers with bright white outer petals.
