‘Raspberry Ruffles’ produces large, fragrant, fully double, raspberry pink blossoms about 1¾” wide. Each serrated petal is framed by a razor thin white edge. A polished, upright habit with blue-green foliage – just the right size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers!
Dianthus grow best in loose, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soils. Best flowering in full sun. Deadhead to promote rebloom. Add a layer of mulch in the fall to protect the evergreen foliage. As soon as the weather begins to warm up in spring, remove the mulch to prevent crown rot.
Bloom time: early summer to early fall
Sun: full sun to part shade
