Dianthus 'Double Bubble' PP29972 (30)ct Flat
PRETTY POPPERS® Series
Common Name: Pinks
'Double Bubble' has double, medium pink flowers with blue-green foliage. Very floriferous and a petite package.
Dianthus are among the best for providing color in late spring and early summer. The PRETTY POPPERS™ Series are semi-evergreen perennials and offer an abundance of red, pink, and white flowers; perfect for the front of the border.
In the carnation family, Dianthus cultivars deliver gorgeous single, semi-double, and fully double flowers. Singles tend to deliver more flowers while doubles are significantly larger, sometimes more than twice the size. Singles also tend to grow quicker and can appear like a carpet in the landscape at maturity.
Dianthus grow best in loose, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soils. Lime can be added to the soil if it is naturally acidic to raise the pH. Dianthus can be grown in full sun or part shade, but the foliage will not be as lush and fewer flowers will be produced if it is grown in hot, dry areas. Regular watering during prolonged dry spells will be necessary. However, they are tolerant of short periods of dryness.
Do a thorough clean-up in the fall to prevent pest and disease problems and add a layer of mulch to protect the evergreen foliage. As soon as the weather begins to warm up, remove all of this mulch to prevent crown rot.
