Dianthus x hybrida Annual. Rainbow Loveliness has fragrance: glorious, heavenly, sinfully delicious and intoxicatingly jasminy. Such scent, often bred out of modern hybrids, is the primary attribute which gives Dianthus its deserved reputation among avid fans. Neither do their looks disappoint: a bit out of this world, like terrestrial sea anemone, with segmented pentagon eyes out of which wave deeply fringed blooms, creating a wispy feathery effect. Grows 14" tall. Mix of carmine, white, pink and bicolored 1½" blooms in loose clusters. Blooms late July from early June transplanting. About 1,200 seeds/g. ②BACK!

The name comes from the Greek meaning ‘divine flowers.’ Some Dianthus are carnations; some are commonly known as Pinks, not for their color, but for their serrated petal tips which look like they’ve been cut with pinking shears. All have fabulous fragrance.
All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
