Dianthus (Paint the town magenta)
- A tough evergreen with blue/green leaves and vibrant magenta pink flowers in spring and summer. This new verity from PROVEN WINNERS is an improvement over the other punk verity (Firewitch) Excellent ground cover for rock gardens or flowerbeds in full sun. Makes a nice evergreen carpet year-round. Excellent deer-resistance.
- Full sun & well-drained soil, dislikes "wet feet". Very hardy, no supplemental water needed once established.
- Flat ground cover, spreads 18-24 inches. Evergreen.
The plant arrived in just a few days. It was in excellent condition and is doing well after planting in the garden.
Packed amazingly well, no harm to live plant!!
Only negative was I was looking for a ground cover, darker green like shown in the picture, but same flower and flower size. I cannot find it anywhere.
This plant is beautiful but has silver green leaves and has a stemmed flower about 6 inches tall . though I have many , just wish I could find the groundcover!
