About Mini Carnation Super Trouper Butterfly Dark Red

 

This Dianthus is a looker in more ways than one! A fable describes Diana the Goddess growing fond of a shepherd boy that didn't return the affection. Her embarrassment and anger for this rejection got the best of her, and she gouged his eyes out. Where they fell, the Dianthus grew in their place. An ode to the boy in the form of this beautiful carnation's bloom seems fitting.

Fun Facts

Dianthus are tight knit and sprawl a bit like a carpet making a good ground cover. Keep them in well draining soil with a neutral to alkaline pH. Add dolomite lime if the soil is too acidic.

Dianthus bloom in throughout the growing season from spring to fall and some even have a spicy fragrance. Dianthus bloom attracts moths and butterflies to the garden. Even when the Dianthus is not blooming, they have a blue-green foliage that adds color to the garden borders.
