Dianthus 'Funky Fuchsia' PPAF CPBRAF - Proven Winners® FRUIT PUNCH® Series (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Pinks
Fully double fuchsia purple flowers are a new color for the FRUIT PUNCH® series and a unique color for hardy Dianthus. The florist quality blooms are among the largest in the series, reaching 1½-2" wide. Compared with fellow large flowered phenom 'Cranberry Cocktail', 'Funky Fuchsia' has much less red flowers. Glaucous blue-green foliage is semi-evergreen.
Members of the Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH® series share the following traits: semi to fully double, fragrant flowers, and good heat and humidity tolerance. Flowers appear in early summer, and a quick shearing after flowering will encourage them to rebloom in early fall. FRUIT PUNCH® Dianthus are just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers.
