Dianthus Flow is a new series of pot carnations that is known for its extremely large flowers and unique color range. With six eye-catching colors, there is something for everyone. And, like most dianthus, this series has a pleasing spicy clove scent.

Bloom size ranges from an astonishing 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 inches. The Flow series blooms early and will re-bloom if deadheaded and fertilized, giving a long season of enjoyment.

Additional notes

  • Monitor regularly for mites, aphids and thrips.
  • Routine application of fungicides is recommended for prevention of common Dianthus diseases such as phythium, fusarium and alternaria.
  • For fuller pots, use of Florel or similar products to promote branching.
