Dianthus 'Maraschino'

Dianthus 'Maraschino'

Latin Name: Dianthus 'Maraschino'

Stunning, fragrant double flowers are bright cherry red with burgundy eyes, above mounds of fine foliage; great for flower arrangements; deadhead to rebloom; pair up with summer blooming perennials and annuals to time a continued flower display.

Fruit Punch® Maraschino Pinks is an herbaceous evergreen perennial with a mounded form. It brings an extremely fine and delicate texture to the garden composition and should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
