Dianthus (Dianthus Arenarius White) - Easy-to-grow from Dianthus flower seed, these white, 1 inch blooms in mid-summer adorn Dianthus Arenarius on its narrow, blue-green leaves. When in bloom, the flowers have a sweet scent. Dianthus Arenarius white is a good plant for the rock garden or the front of the border, or use as a ground cover plant.
This Dianthus perennial plant needs well-drained soil. Planting flower seeds at the edge of a rock garden or wall works well. After it is done blooming, cut stems back to foliage for a second bloom season in late summer. Dianthus Arenarius is a pretty drought tolerant ground cover plant.
For early blooms, sow Dianthus Arenarius ground cover seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season is over. Use sterile starter mix and sow seeds on the surface. Barely cover Dianthus seeds with soil. Transplant seedlings outdoors when temperatures have warmed. Or, directly sow ground cover seeds outdoors into prepared soil after frost season has passed. Lightly cover Dianthus seeds and keep them moist until germination.
