Easy-Growing, Fragrant White Flowers

Why Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus Plants?

A popular choice for low-maintenance ground cover, the Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus features evergreen foliage and charming white flowers with a deep-red center, paired with a rich, spicy fragrance.

Its compact, clumping habit makes it perfect for small gardens, border accents, groundcover and patio containers, adding easy-growing color wherever it's planted.

Hardy down to -10 degrees Fahrenheit, the Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus is also drought-tolerant and and thrives in any soil type. And while this Dianthus attracts bees and butterflies, it's resistant to deer and rabbits. It's great for first-time growers, master gardeners and everyone in between.

Plus, long-lasting blooms ensure that you get cheerful flowers and delightful fragrance from spring all the way through summer.

Why is Better

When you buy a Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus from, you get a hardy perennial that's been nurtured with care at our nursery. That means a healthier plant and better-looking blooms than you'll find at your local nursery or big box.

Don't wait to get this exciting Dianthus for your landscape. Order yours today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Your Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus will perform best in full sun. Find a spot with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day.

Plant your flowers in a hole twice as wide but as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. For best results, 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 Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio.

2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water. If your Dianthus is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.

Received healthy plants!

We are so pleased with the plants we purchased from Fast Growing Trees! Everything arrived healthy, well packaged, and with planting instructions. We ordered Scent First Coconut Surprise Dianthus, Walkers Low Nepeta Catmint, and Butterfly Lo and Behold Purple Haze. This is our second time ordering and we will be back!
