Maiden Pink flower seed

Maiden Pink (Dianthus Deltoides Red) - Grow this outstanding, low growing flower from Dianthus seeds! Commonly called Maiden Pink, this perennial remains green year round with 1 inch fragrant blooms of pink and red hues concentrated at the top during its blooming season from spring to summer. Dianthus Deltoides Maiden Pinks is a mat-forming species with dark green leaves and is so rewarding to grow. The Maiden Pink flowers keep their beauty even during the hottest summer months. It is a liberal self-sower, dropping its own flower seeds, so it will fill in nicely, making it a great ground cover or border plant.

Maiden Pink seeds take about 14 days to germinate. Sow flower seed indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost, and transplant when plants are 3 inches high. Or sow Dianthus flower seeds directly outside as soon as soil can be prepared and cover with 1/8 inch of topsoil. Might take a full year before flowering.
