Dianthus EARLY BIRD™ Fizzy

Dianthus = ‘Wp08 Ver03’

The new Dianthus Whetman® EARLY BIRD™ Collection starts flowering at the end of February or the beginning of March, depending on your location. And if you remove the spent blooms, they will continue to rebloom right through to fall. They make excellent subjects for window boxes, baskets or planters.

Dianthus Whetman® EARLY BIRD™ Fizzy ‘Wp08 Ver03’ features an explosion of pale lavender petals with serrated edges and deep purple centers. Wonderfully perfumed. Very long-flowering.
