Heirloom cottage garden flower

beloved by generations of gardeners.

Each stem carries a big cluster of flowers in red, pink, white, or burgundy, ringed and edged with contrasting colors.

Often listed as biennials, but we have seen these perennialize in well-drained soil. Handsome evergreen foliage, great for cutting.

BOTANICAL NAME:Dianthus barbatus

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS :

Prefers cool, moist weather; best to sow indoors at the same time as tomatoes, and transplant out around the last frost date. Or direct-sow as early as the soil can be worked. Germinates in 1-2 weeks. Prefers deeply-dug, well-prepared soil with lots of humus, and steady moisture . In hot-summer areas, best with some afternoon shade. Blooms second year from seed; give winter protection. Will perennialize in mild coastal climates and sometimes elsewhere.

GROW BIOINTENSIVE® CULTURAL INFORMATION: Biennial or Perennial/Height 8'/Spacing 6"
