Description / Dianthus SINGLE STAR™ Fire Star Improved - Red Carnation

The Dianthus 'Fire Star' stands out in any garden with its striking red carnation flowers, offering a low maintenance yet vibrant option for garden enthusiasts. Its bold red blooms emerge against the backdrop of lush, blue-green foliage , making it a standout choice for sunny borders, foundational plantings, or garden pathways. From late spring to early summer, this red carnation flower brings a burst of color to your outdoor spaces.

The fragrance of the Dianthus 'Fire Star' is as delightful as its appearance. With a light, clove-scented aroma, it enhances the garden air with sweetness without being overpowering. The blooms, a rich red that can rival the darkest crimson eye, boast neatly "pinked" edges, while the foliage presents a striking shade of blue. This dynamic contrast keeps the 'Fire Star' attractive throughout the season, making it a prized red carnation in any setting.

Exceptional for its heat resistance, the Dianthus 'Fire Star' outperforms other red carnations during the challenging long, hot summers. This red carnation flower maintains its beauty and vigor, even in drought conditions, distinguishing itself as a resilient choice for rock gardens, areas with well-drained soils, and environments leaning towards slightly alkaline. With its capability to repel pests and attract pollinators, the Dianthus 'Fire Star' not only adds visual appeal with its red flowers but also supports garden health and biodiversity.

Ideal for adding a splash of color with red flowers or incorporating resilient plants that require minimal care, the Dianthus 'Fire Star' is a testament to both beauty and strength. Its compatibility with a range of garden designs, from rock gardens to elegant borders, along with its spectrum of colors from dark red to the softer hues of white and pink carnations, ensures it is a versatile addition to any garden.

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.
