Dianthus are back in vogue due to superior new varieties now being available. Offering nothing short of outstanding garden performance, 'Passion' hails from decades of specialised dianthus breeding. As part of the Scent First Collection, this variety delivers everything we love about 'garden pinks', including fantastic colour and fragrance but with the real bonus of long term garden results. By adding 'Passion' to your garden you will be creating impressive garden displays with minimal effort. Whilst it rewards you with gorgeous colour and whimsical perfume, it will also thrive under a wide range of garden conditions. Compact habit, strong flower stems and masses of blooms are why 'Passion' is recognised as a market leader. The striking deep red, double flowers are a real drawcard for this plant. Another outstanding introduction from the world renowned dianthus breeder 'Whetman Pinks'. Plant alongside other members of the Scent First range for maximum impact.

Dianthus 'Passion' has low water requirements. Once established, it is quite dry tolerant requiring only an occasional deep soak during periods of extended heat. Low maintenance and easy to grow, brighten your garden with D. 'Passion' today. Pruning is generally not required, although removing spent flower stems will encourage further flushes. Apply a slow release fertiliser during early spring for optimum results.
