Why Firewitch Dianthus Plants?
Specifically bred to give you tons of color without the work, the Firewitch is perfect for master and beginner gardeners alike. Ideal for perennial borders, plain hillsides, containers, and beyond, the Dianthus, also known as the Pink Carnation, is a versatile pick with no guesswork required.
In fact, the Dianthus bursts forth with hot pink blooms in a unique clove scent from spring through the hot summer months. You're never left wanting for color...you get vibrant hues without any effort. The Firewitch is best for vigor, moderate hardiness, and lots of pink blooms with no effort required on your part.
Plus, its rich green backdrop stays vibrant throughout winter, and it resists deer that leave other similar varieties vulnerable. Fragrance, full flowers, and fresh greenery that stays pristine in tough conditions? The Dianthus does it all.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your flowers in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your Carnation, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your Carnation is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
