Dianthus Firewitch ('Feurerhexe')

Firewitch Cheddar Pinks

  • Tight, tufted mounds of blue-green foliage
  • Scented, bright magenta flowers
  • Repeat bloom in late summer
  • Low-growing, great for edging or containers
  • Deer resistant
Dreamy is the word that will come to mind when you catch a glimpse of this trailing, floriferous plant in bloom. Of course, even when it's out of bloom it's noteworthy with long, narrow, baby-blue foliage that forms a dense mat that can light up a sunny garden on its own. But, this striking foliage combined with a wave of deep violet pink single carnations that sit above the foliage from late May through June is simply electrifying! Plant it en masse in a well-drained soil spot or even in a container garden and enjoy the spectacle
