Description

Whether you are looking for a groundcover, border, or accent perennial the Frosty Fire Dianthus is a stunning choice. This dwarf carnation is the perfect perennial for a pop of color and texture. Cool blue foliage and red hot flowers offer amazing color contrast in one little package

Double red blooms blanket the Frosty Fire Dianthus from late spring into summer. These frilly, fragrant flowers attract butterflies with their spicy scent. The dusty blue foliage forms a compact mound and is evergreen in most climates.

The Frosty Fire Dianthus is deer resistant and pollution and salt tolerant. This hardy plant is low maintenance and easy to grow.

This Dianthus thrives in full sun and is adaptable to most well-drained soil. Water deeply about 2 times per week for the first few months. Once established, dianthus are drought tolerant. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring. Deadheading isn't necessary, but it can increase blooms and even extend bloom time.

How To Care

Spring or fall are ideal times to plant your Frosty Fire Dianthus. However, as long as you avoid extreme temperature you can plant almost any time of the year. Plant you Frosty Fire Dianthus in growing zones 3 to 8.

This Dianthus thrives in full sun and is adaptable to a variety of soil, as long as it is well-drained. Water deeply when planting and 2 times per week for the first 3 months while your plant is establishing. Once established, water your Dianthus when dry. Add 2-3 inches of mulch to prevent weeds and protect your plant's roots in extreme temperatures. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring. Deadheading isn't necessary, but it can increase blooms and extend bloom time.

Dianthus are deer resistant and pollution and salt tolerant. They are very hardy and low maintenance.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Spider Mites and Aphids are potential problem insects for the Dianthus. These pests can be treated naturally with neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Dianthus can, on occasion, encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective. So, if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire plant must be coated in order for this method to be effective. Always water at the base of this plant to avoid fungal disease on the leaves.

Landscape Ideas

The ideal addition to any rock or cottage garden, the Frosty Fire Dianthus is the perfect perennial for a pop of color and texture.  At a mere 6 inches tall and 8 to 12 inches wide at maturity this Dianthus fits just about anywhere. Just be sure the spot you choose gets plenty of sun so you get the best blooms.  The grass-like blue foliage is evergreen in most areas so this plant makes a lovely groundcover or border for paths, walkways, gardens, and mixed beds. The petite perennial is pretty in planters by itself or combined with other plants.  Make sure your container drains well for best results. The fragrant flowers are fabulous for a cutting garden. Firewitch and Early Bird Frosty Dianthus are also great options.


For additional options, be sure to browse our Phlox and Ground Cover Plants collections.

Frosty fire dianthus online order

I ordered my plants online because I bought everything at the nursery and couldn't find anymore anywhere. They came in quickly, well packaged, and in good condition. I let them sit out in the yard for a few days, fortunately it rained. I put the plants in the ground and so far they are doing well.
