Overview

Dianthus (Sweet Williams) is a low growing, compact tender perennial prized for its ruffly blooms and spicy-sweet scent. This mixture includes shades of red, pink, purple, coral, and bicolors with picotee edges. The flowers grow in bunches and is a beautiful and fragrant addition to bouquets. Sweet Williams is also edible and the colorful petals can be used as a garnish in drinks, salads, soups, and desserts. The flavor is mild and very reminiscent of cloves.

Most garden pests do not like the sweet scent of Sweet Williams so it’s a good choice for inter-planting among vegetable crops. Sweet Williams will flower the first year and produces blooms from spring until summer. Though it is a perennial, it tends to lose vigor after a couple years so it’s best treated as an biennial. From our experience, Dianthus stands out from other flowers because of its resilience to heat and transplanting. It is usually one of the first plants that needs transplanting because it grows so fast! Its only requirements are good drainage and sun. In the right environment, Dianthus is very easy to establish, can tolerate heat and light frost, and will re-seed year after year.

Sowing Instructions

Sow indoors 10-12 weeks before last frost. Lightly press seed into soil. Transplant to 3-4″ containers 20-25 days after sowing. Harden off and plant out after last frost at 6″ apart. Alternatively, direct seed in early spring. Plants can handle light frost.
