Dianthus Heddewigii

Japanese Pinks (Dianthus Heddewigii Black & White) - Start this dramatic annual from Dianthus seeds, and enjoy its bold statement in the flower border. Dianthus Heddewiggii is often referred to as Japanese Pinks. The name Pink does not refer to the color but rather to the serrated edges which look like they have been cut with pinking shears. This Dianthus is an elegant, bushy, uniform plant, with bluish-green foliage and large double flowers that are black and white and stunning! This is one of the most attractive Dianthus flowers available. Deadhead the spent blooms to encourage continuous blooming. Dianthus Heddewigii will bloom for most of the summer.

For early blooms, sow Dianthus seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season is over. Use sterile starter mix and sow seeds on the surface. Barely cover Dianthus seeds with soil. Transplant seedlings when temperatures have warmed. Or sow Dianthus flower seed directly outside after frost season has passed and soil temperatures are warming to a minimum of 40 degrees or warmer. Broadcast the flower seed and lightly rake in to the soil no more than 1/8th deep and keep the seed moist until germination.
