  • New and unique colour - without forsaking the fragrance

There are some genetically modified varieties out there with a blue tinge to the petals but Dianthus 'Purple Rain' is the closest to a natural blue carnation that we've seen. This modern hardy Carnation has an exquisite fragrance that is almost as alluring as its colour. Undemanding and well behaved, this clump forming perennial is perfect for the front of borders and makes a lovely cut flower too. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 30cm (12").


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.

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until dianthus plants are fully established. Deadhead faded dianthus flowers frequently to encourage more blooms to be produced.
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.
