These magenta pink Dianthus live up to their name. Pretty Poppers® Double Bubble have fully double blooms that look like bubbles attached to its grassy green stems. The show keeps going from late spring through to mid summer. Dianthus makes a great addition as an edging plant for the garden border or in mixed seasonal containers alongside late spring bulbs and annuals.

Pretty Popper® Double Bubble Pinks have a compact mounded shape that blends in with other perennials easily. The grass-like foliage is semi-evergreen and lasts year round in the higher hardiness zones. The amazing scent of Dianthus will remind you that the longer days of summer are on their way. Deer resistance as well as disease resistant, Pinks are one of the lowest maintenance of perennials.

Pretty Poppers® Double Bubble Pinks Care

Double Bubble Pinks like a sunny location to keep it blooming for a long time. Average soil texture and pH are fine. Dianthus are drought tolerant once established, although extra irrigation may be needed the first 2 years during hot and dry spells. Mulching with an organic compost or fine arborist chips helps the soil bulk up and eventually become more moisture retentive. 

A program of fertilizing and maintenance early in the spring will help Pretty Poppers® to remain vigorous bloomers. A well balanced, slow release fertilizer is recommended. Pinks planted in containers should be fed monthly with a weak water soluble fertilizer. Cutting back any dead foliage will tidy the plant up for an explosion of new growth in late spring. Dianthus do well with dividing every 3-4 years. The plants begin to die off in the middle over time. Dividing the clumps will really reinvigorate the roots into more growth.

Pretty Poppers® Double Bubble Pinks Spacing

Pretty Poppers® has a small and compact size,  with a height of 6-8 inches and width of 6-8 inches. Spacing in the garden is recommended at 6 inches on center. When planting in a mixed perennial or annual container, spacing can be as close as needed to make the display pop. Pretty Poppers® make a great filler element.

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.

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.

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.
