DIANTHUS: A wonderful plant found in many heirloom gardens, Dianthus have been a favorite of gardeners for generations. Easy to grow and wonderfully colored, it is no wonder to find them a part of so many gardens.
A gorgeous addition to the garden or vase! For those of us that wish we could grow roses everywhere, here is a compact, easy, and drought-resistant way to add rose-like blooms to every container, crack, and crevice in the garden! Growing just about a foot tall and wide, this fantastically easy succulent offers waves of sweetly scented, frilly pink blooms through spring and summer!
'Rosebud' makes a fantastic cut flower not just because of its alluring color and fragrance, but also because the plant responds well to cutting, hurrying to replace the blooms for you quickly! The charming little blooms are commonly worn as clothing accessories like nosegays and boutonnieres. Even if you prefer to leave your blooms in the garden, prompt deadheading will ensure the display keeps coming through spring and well into summer!
Grow 'Rosebud' in full sun (or part shade) and well-drained soil. It prefers sandy soil or a well-drained potting mix. Every 2-3 years the plant should be ready to be divided, increasing your coverage of lovely, rosy blooms over time! Zones 5 to 9.
