Dianthus Chinensis are lightly scented and though hardy perennials in zones 7-10, they are considered annuals. Very colorful, they will bloom all summer long. The plants form a 3-4 inch high mound and the flowers are borne on stalks 6-10 inches tall. The variety reseeds itself.
Dianthus are biennials or short-lived perennials that are primarily grown as annuals in cold weather areas. They don't do very well in hot and humid summers.
They are best grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun, but appreciate some afternoon shade in hot summer weather.
Deadhead spent flowers to promote blooming. When flowering declines, plants may be cut to promote additional bloom.
Dianthus plants attract butterflies and hummingbirds, as well as pollinating insects.
