Dianthus, Fancy Knickers
Description: The Dianthus 'Fancy Knickers', Dianthus Hybrid, has elegant white flowers with just a touch of red in the center. Their very compact habit and free blooming nature make the 'Fancy Knickers' Dianthus a stand out both in container gardens and perennial borders. Dianthus will bloom from mid summer to early fall. In order for a longer bloom time, deadhead the blooms continuously throughout the summer. Dianthus needs a sunny site with well-drained soil, but will tolerate some shade in the afternoon and humidity. These fragrant, spicy dove like flowers look wonderful as a border plant, rock gardens, along walks or paths and for edging - a very pretty plant.
