Description / EverBloom™ Watermelon Ice - Pink Dianthus

Dianthus EverBloom™ Watermelon Ice is a stunning perennial plant that offers a burst of vibrant pink color and three seasons of interest in your garden. This ground cover or alpine type plant is a true showstopper, continuously blooming from early summer all the way to the first frost in fall.

One of the most remarkable features of Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice is its abundance of quarter-dollar-sized pink flowers. These lovely blooms, with their delicate white fringed edges, create a captivating contrast against the plant's lush green foliage. But the beauty of this dianthus goes beyond its appearance— the flowers are also incredibly fragrant, emitting a delightful clove scent that fills the air, attracting bees and butterflies to your garden.

The blue-green foliage of Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice adds a touch of elegance to any landscape. With its densely branched and long-stemmed growth habit, it creates a lush carpet of grassy foliage that is not only visually appealing but also serves as an excellent ground cover. This makes it a fantastic choice for rock gardens, where the plant's mat-forming nature can help stabilize soil and prevent erosion. It also thrives when massed in landscapes or grouped in mixed beds, borders, and containers, creating a striking visual impact.

One of the many advantages of Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice is its low maintenance nature. This perennial is deer resistant and disease resistant, giving you peace of mind knowing that it can withstand environmental challenges. It also displays a high tolerance to pollution, making it suitable for urban gardens or areas with less than ideal air quality.

To ensure optimal growth, plant Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice in a sunny location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. The plant prefers organically rich, well-draining soil with a pH range of 5.5 to 6.2. Maintaining proper moisture levels is important, as the plant thrives in evenly moist soil. However, it's essential to avoid waterlogged conditions that can lead to root rot.

Maintenance of Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice is relatively simple. Deadheading spent flowers not only keeps the plant looking tidy but also encourages continuous blooming throughout the season. Trimming back the plant after blooming in summer stimulates new growth and enhances its overall appearance.

With its long-lasting blooms, fragrant flowers, and stunning foliage, Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice is truly a remarkable addition to any garden. It brings joy and beauty throughout the year, becoming a focal point in your landscape and attracting admiration from all who see it.

So, why wait? Update your garden with the vibrant pink blooms and delightful fragrance of Dianthus EverBloom Watermelon Ice. Shop now and experience the enchantment of this exceptional perennial carnation.

Sweet-smelling dianthus flowers are also known by their common names: carnations, pinks, and sweet William. A family with hundreds of low maintenance varieties, you can find a carnation color and bloom style for nearly any garden purpose.
