Dianthus Supernova


Very free flowering and highly scented border perennials that are equally as easy to grow as the perfumed collection. The Devon varieties are excellent as cut flowers in the house as they last for a long time in a vase. The plant quickly replenishes the lost flowers so remaining visually appealing in the garden too. Unfussy on soil conditions in sun or part shade. Height & spread 12-14”. Hardy perennial.

Additional Information

Attractive to bees and butterflies. Scented. Perfect for borders and containers. Deadhead to encourage more blooms, 'Early Birds' varieties can be sheared lightly to keep them flowering longer. Propagate by taking cuttings from non flowering shoots in summer. They can survive temperatures as low as -27 degrees. They survive this in the ground rather than in pots. Make sure soil is well drained and avoid winter wet which can be harmful. Fully hardy perennial.

Fully hardy perennials will withstand temperatures down to -15 °C (5°F) and often lower.
Hardy perennials are happy down to at least -5°C (23°F)
Half hardy perennials can withstand down to around 0°C (32°F)
And Tender perennials may be damaged by temperatures below 5°C (41°F)

Please remember that temperatures can vary significantly within quite a small area, and hardiness can be affected by soil, position and other factors.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
