Dianthus – Super Trouper Orange Carnation
A profuse blooming member of the Super Trouper Series of Dianthus, Super Trouper Orange Carnation brings deliciously scented flowers in shades of apricot and orange. Its exquisite blossoms are loaded with frilly petals and a rich, spicy clove fragrance. The Super Trouper series are known to be very long blooming, have rich colors, and exceptional tight, compact habits.
Easy to grow even in tough spots, it works well as an evergreen perennial. Deer and bunnies don’t touch it. It makes a fantastic addition to the perennial and cut flower garden, and to containers alone or mixed with other plants.
Plant in full sun, areas that receive at least 6 hours of sun a day, in well-draining soil. Cutting back spent flowers will encourage heavier rebloom. For best results fertilize.
