Description / Dianthus STAR DOUBLE™ 'Starlette'

Dianthus Star Double™ 'Starlette' is an evergreen perennial offering 3 seasons of interest. Perpetually flowering from spring to fall, the plant sets masses of small, deeply fringed, raspberry pink double blooms. Borne on sturdy stems, rising 3 inches above the foliage, the spicy clove-scented flowers attract bees and butterflies to the garden. Considered florist's carnations, they make excellent additions to fresh floral arrangements.

Dianthus, commonly called carnations or pinks, are loosely tufted herbaceous plants. Star Double™ 'Starlette' has a unique, dense, mounding habit of grassy silver blue leaves. A quintessential cottage garden plant, pinks grow well in containers but are shown to best effect when massed in landscapes, mixed beds, and borders.

Dianthus Star Double™ 'Starlette' prefers full sun and organically rich, evenly moist, well-drained, gritty loams with a 5.5 to 6.2 pH. Deadheading spent flowers encourages blooms. The plant is deer and drought resistant and pollution tolerant.
