Dianthus plumarius Itsaul White
Glistening vanilla scented, pure white semi-double blooms blanket Dianthus Itsaul White. Charming fringed petals highlight the silvery-blue evergreen foliage. Long blooming; perfect for small bouquets. Pairs well with Siberian Iris.


Foliage remains evergreen in all but the coldest winters. Dianthus are garden classics, appearing in many shapes and colors, most with blue/green or blue frosted quill-like foliage. Long blooming, perfect for small bouquets-most are fragrant. A cottage garden is not complete without several Dianthus. All are heat tolerant and low maintenance beauties.

Deadheading and picking flowers for indoors will prolong blooming. Do not shear foliage. Prefers a loose and sandy alkaline soil. Can be divided in spring every 2-3 years.
