Dianthus 'Odessa Amy'

Carnation, Pink

Hardy Perennial

  • Mini carnations ideal for small spaces!
  • 30 blooms or more at any one time!!
  • Bright colours and a spicy fragrance

This tough garden variety is one of the best performers we've seen in both field and container trials. These compact carnation plants make up for their lack of height with an impressive display of perfumed blooms. Carnation 'Odessa Amy' really puts on a heavy flowering display, expect 30 blooms on each plant at any one time. Not only does it bring vivid colours to your patio and table top containers, you'll also be rewarded with a warm spicy fragrance - something that is missing from many other modern bred varieties in the search for stronger colours. The short stature of 'Odessa Amy' makes it a perfect choice for adding colour to the front of borders, and this cute carnation won't look out of place in rock garden plantings either. Height 20cm (8"). Spread 25cm (10").


Culinary note: Use the clove like tasting petals for adding to cakes, either for flavour or decorating, suitable for soups, salads and sauces too. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Pot up dianthus plants into pots of free-draining compost, and grow dianthus on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When all risk of frost has passed and plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant dianthus outdoors in moist, well drained soil that has been enriched with plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. Choose a position in full sun.
Feed and water regularly until dianthus plants are fully established. Deadhead faded dianthus flowers frequently to encourage more blooms to be produced.
