The darling, showy flowers of the Pretty Poppers® Appleblossom Burst Pinks Dianthus will turn heads. Double, ruffled flowers have light pink near the edges and gradually fade to white close to the base, while bold accents of deep red stand out near the center. This prolific bloomer puts on a show mid-spring through early summer. While the flowers are the showstopper, this perennial also features striking narrow, greenish-blue foliage.

This mounded plant creates a full, rounded look and adds color and texture to a bed or border. The stems naturally spread out, so this plant can quickly overtake a space with the flowers gently overflowing from the edge of a bed or container. Feature several of these plants together for a lovely and colorful look. Pollinators are also drawn to the showy blooms of this hardy plant that thrives in USDA zones 4 through 9.

Pretty Poppers® Appleblossom Burst Pinks Dianthus Care

Dianthus needs full to partial sun and ideally will receive 4 to 6 hours of light. Plant in rich, moist but well-drained soil and water weekly or when the soil starts to dry out. Each spring, apply a balanced, organic fertilizer to replenish the nutrients and encourage new growth.

Deadhead the plant throughout the bloom cycle to help the perennial redirect energy into new flowers and growth. Prune all the growth back to a few inches in the fall after the flowers fade.

Pretty Poppers® Appleblossom Burst Pinks Dianthus Spacing

This upright mounded perennial will grow 8 to 10 inches tall and cover an area of about 16 to 20 inches. Plant Dianthus 14 to 18 inches apart, and as the plants fill in, they will cover an area with a carpet of greenery and blooms. Two plants can be grown in a 12-inch container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
