Dianthus Barbatus Dunetti will get clusters of crimson red flowers that will catch your eye and the eye of your neighbors. Easily grown from Dianthus seeds, this plant will bloom in about 3 months.
This Dianthus Sweet William is hardy from zones 5 through 9, thriving in full sun and any ordinary garden soil, provided it is well-drained. A mainstay of any self-respecting border or bed, Sweet William also does well in containers of all types, accent plantings, and edgings among flowering ground cover plants. You may also cut and put in a vase and it will last approximately 2 weeks.
For early blooms, sow Sweet Williams seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season is over. Use sterile starter mix and sow flower seeds on the surface. Barely cover the Dianthus seed with soil. Transplant seedlings when temperatures have warmed. Or, directly sow flower seeds outdoors into prepared soil after frost season has passed. Lightly cover Dianthus flower seeds and keep them moist until germination.
