FRUIT PUNCH® BLACK CHERRY FROST DIANTHUS

Dianthus x 'Black Cherry Frost'
PP28605 Plant propagation prohibited

Breeder
Buy Fruit Punch® Black Cherry Frost Dianthus online. 'Black Cherry Frost' fills the void of dark red flowers in the Fruit Punch® series. 1¼", rich, semi-double velvety red flowers have a fine, serrated, near white edge. Flower stems are strong, and are produced above the silvery blue foliage. Members of the Dianthus FRUIT PUNCH® series all share the following traits: fragrant flowers and good heat and humidity tolerance. Flowers appear in early summer, and a quick shearing after will encourage them to rebloom in early fall.
