Description / Dianthus 'Raspberry Swirl' - Red and White Carnations

Dianthus Raspberry Swirl is a captivating addition to any garden, known for its enchanting display of double blooms that draw the eye and heart. With ruffled petals transitioning from near-white to powder pink and finally to radiant white, each flower is edged in a deep maroon that matures into a striking magenta. These red and white carnations, emerging from classic blue-green foliage, are a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds, enriching your garden's biodiversity.

This easy-to-grow plant is not just a feast for the eyes; its robust and reliable stems make Raspberry Swirl an excellent choice for cut flower arrangements, boasting a long vase life that is enhanced with just 25 stems and a bit of flower food. From early spring to early summer, and again in fall with proper deadheading, Raspberry Swirl's blooms maintain their allure, while the evergreen foliage provides year-round ground cover, making it a versatile and attractive option for any setting, including rock gardens.

Dianthus Raspberry Swirl thrives in full to part sun and prefers loose, well-drained soil, with a neutral to alkaline pH. It's low maintenance and adaptable, requiring more moisture during extreme heat but less attention once established, making it ideal for gardeners seeking beauty without the fuss. Suitable for Zones 5-9, this red and white carnation is a testament to the charm and resilience of Dianthus varieties.

Incorporating Dianthus Raspberry Swirl into your garden not only brings vibrant color and continuous interest but also supports local wildlife, making your garden a haven for nature's most beautiful creatures. Its easy care and stunning appearance make it a must-have for any gardener looking to enhance their outdoor space with minimal effort.

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.
