Description


You are bound to fall in love with Dianthus Passion. Bright red highly scented double blooms are held on wiry stems over neat evergreen domes of blue-green weed-suppressing foliage, from late spring until autumn. A sight to behold. Native to Eurasia, Dianthus have been known since ancient times, the name derived from the Greek Dios-anthus, meaning Flower of the Gods. You find Dianthus growing naturally around in the Mediterranean. One of the oldest flowers in cultivation, dating back to Roman times, early Christians believed the first carnation bloomed when Mary wept for Jesus as he carried his cross. Reaching a height of 30-40cm and spread of 20-40cm, slugs, deer and rabbits tend to leave alone, while the blooms are much loved by our pollinating friends, the bees and butterflies. Dianthus Passion is drought tolerant and unfussy on soil conditions, happily flourishing in sun or part shade. A fully hardy perennial that can be left outside over winter with no frost protection required, to be enjoyed during the following summers.
