Description
Deep plum purple, fully double blooms give this traditional border Carnation a luxuriant appearance. The clove-scented flowers are set against a background of slender grey-green leaves that remain evergreen throughout the year. Dianthus caryophyllus 'Sunflor Beetle' has a neat, compact habit and short, sturdy stems that make fabulous cut flowers. This hardy perennial is easy to grow and shows good drought tolerance once established. Perfect for plugging gaps at the front of borders, or filling patio containers with long lasting colour. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Most dianthus have a pleasant spicy, floral, clove-like taste, especially the more fragrant varieties, and are ideal for decorating or adding to cakes. They'll also make a colourful garnish to soups, salads and the punch bowl. The petals will add zest to ice cream, sorbets, salads, fruit salad, dessert sauces, seafood and stir-fries.

How to Grow
Plant carnations 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.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until dianthus plants are fully established. Deadhead faded dianthus flowers frequently to encourage more blooms to be produced and maintain plant vigour.
