The Scent First® Pot series of dianthus are specifically bred for magnificent fragrance, color and form, making them heavenly additions to bouquets and cut flower arrangements. Dianthus Scent First® 'Coral Reef' features frilly, feminine double blooms that are coral pink with white edging. These blooms produce a strong, spicy scent that is even more noticeable when you cut them.

If you're looking for a brilliantly beautiful ground cover, border, or container plant, look no further than Dianthus Scent First® 'Coral Reef'. Dianthus are perfectly suited for rock gardens and exposed hills, preferring well-drained, windswept spots to boggy, stagnant ones.

Dianthus Scent First® 'Coral Reef', easy-to-grow little perennials, flaunt their coral and white blooms from early spring all the way until fall. Remove spent flowers and fertilize occasionally to encourage the most re-blooming. The playful blooms appear atop compact mounds of succulent, glaucous blue-green foliage up to 18 inches wide and 12 inches tall.

Dianthus Scent First® 'Coral Reef' is unpalatable to both deer and rabbits, and very low maintenance. Simply plant in a sunny, well drained spot and it will bloom like clockwork, blessing your landscape with gorgeous color and delicious scents.
