Caring for Super Trouper Silver Pink Dianthus

Spring or fall are ideal times to plant your Silver Pink Super Trouper Dianthus. However, as long as you avoid extreme temperature you can plant almost any time of the year. Plant you Super Trouper Dianthus in growing zones 6 to 10.

This Dianthus thrives in full to part 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 a slow release fertilizer in spring after the chance of frost has passed. Deadheading isn't necessary, but it can increase blooms and extend bloom time.

This Dianthus is deer resistant and pollution, drought, heat, and salt tolerant.

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.
