    Estimated Delivery Date: - .

    This charming perennial, known as Dianthus 'Early Bird Frosty', is celebrated for its striking white flowers with a delicate blush of pink, offering a delightful fragrance. Blooming earlier than many other varieties, this Dianthus is perfect for creating a fresh, inviting display in your garden beds, borders, or containers. 

    We love Dianthus, because although these new varieties might not compare to the old lost varieties, they help us imagine what they must have smelled like in those old cottage gardens of long ago. Frosty is a cutie with the typical silver/sage green mounding foliage and shorter stems covered in white fully ruffled Dianthus flowers. They look very much like miniature Carnations. Dianthus love full sun and well draining soil. Amend with compost every spring and shear back spent flowers at the base to encourage repeat blooming. 

    Key Features:

    • Height: 4-6 inches
    • Spread: 10-12 inches
    • Flower Color: Pure white with a hint of pink
    • Bloom Time: Early spring to early summer, with potential for repeat blooming
    • Sun Requirements: Full sun to partial shade
    • Soil Preferences: Well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
    • Water Needs: Moderate; prefers regular watering but is drought-tolerant once established

    Benefits:

    • Early Bloomer: One of the first Dianthus varieties to bloom in the spring, bringing early color to your garden.
    • Fragrant Flowers: The delicate, spicy-sweet scent adds an aromatic touch to your garden.
    • Compact Size: Ideal for small spaces, edging, rock gardens, and containers.
    • Pollinator Friendly: Attracts bees and butterflies, enhancing garden biodiversity.

    Ideal Uses:

    • Borders and Edging: Perfect for creating neat, colorful edges along pathways and garden beds.
    • Rock Gardens: Adds a soft touch to rock gardens with its compact growth and delicate flowers.
    • Containers: Great for pots and containers, providing early-season color on patios and balconies.
