Dianthus 'Circus Clowns'
Carnation, PinkThe cheery red and white blooms of this border carnation bring a bit of fun and frivolity to the garden whether you set them in large containers or plant them out in open ground.

Indeed you'll never have to visit a florist again for this cut flower favourite! Our carnation plants are perfect for home cut-flower production, you'll be filling a fresh vase at least once a week from July to September. Grow Carnation 'Circus Clown' in pots in the greenhouse for out of season blooms through winter too. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 20cm (8").
