Dianthus 'Class Act'

Dianthus Class Act pots 2

This is a particularly charming variety of Dianthus that comes into the low growing category somewhere between an alpine hybrid and a cottage hybrid. Its merit in particular is the fact it has very striking grey foliage and very showy red flowers that are vibrant red and is repeat flowering. Ideal for front of borders, pots and screes. 

The flowers have a great nutmeg fragrance and remain relatively short , worth deadheading afterwards.  Height around 25cm and spread around 40cm.

This plant does well in pots and new to the English market a real show stopper for pot work and most definitely lives up to its name ‘Class Act’.
