Another outstanding introduction from the world reknowned Dianthus breeder 'Whetmans'. Advances in breeding techniques and dedicated programs for Dianthus have led to the production of this stunning variety. 'Sugar Plum' is a beautifully fragrant selection, easy to grow and exceptionally hardy. A compact form with mid pink, frilled flowers highlighted with cherry central markings appear from late winter through to spring. Buds are also an attractive plum colour. Plant alongside other members of the Scent First range for maximum impact.

Dianthus 'Sugar Plum' has low water requirements, and is quite dry tolerant once established. Will benefit from an occasional soak during periods of extended heat. This low maintenance, easy to grow variety requires no special care. Pruning is generally not required, although removing spent flower heads will encourage further blooms. For optimum performance, apply a slow release fertiliser during early spring according to manufacturers directions.
