Description

Perfect for borders or edging!

Excellent Heat & Drought Tolerance!

This low maintenance perennial provides bold red blooms which emerge against low mounded blue green foliage, first in late spring to early summer. Fire Star is a wonderful addition to your sunny borders, the foundation, or garden pathways.

The fragrance of this dianthis is light and clove scented, as sweet as you could wish but never cloying. The blooms are a rich shade of red, with neatly "pinked" edges, and the foliage is a rich shade of blue. Held well below the foliage, it keeps 'Fire Star' attractive all summer.

Most striking is this new Dianthus's resistance to heat, though. Unlike others, which tend to melt out in long hot summers, 'Fire Star' holds up beautifully. It doesn't mind a bit of drought, either!

This Dianthus is a great choice for any setting. It loves full sun, tolerates a bit of shade, repels pests with its fragrance, and attracts pollinators. What more could any perennial do?!
