Dianthus – Pinball Wizard Carnation
Pinball Wizard Carnation, Dianthus, brings creative artistry to the garden with its crazy-fun flowers heavily scented with spicy perfume. Like a of shot of pink lightning, it lights up the garden with flashes of pink and white. Resembling a bouquet of miniature roses, you’ll admire this unique Carnation for its velvety, spicy scented blossoms. They burst open from distinctive plump buds just above the compact mounded, shiny, silvery-blue foliage in late spring, with flowering repeating into fall.
Pinball Wizard Dianthus’ long, strong stems and sweet perfume makes Pinball Wizard ideal for fresh posies and arrangements. An extremely strong scented variety, try planting a few by the back door, where its heady scent will delight all passing by. Fantastic for containers, garden beds and edging.
Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Deadheading spent flowers will encourage more blooms.
