Bright pink petals mass on strong, upright stems. Get your garden ready for some electrifying colour! Dianthus ‘Jolt Series’ is robust, copes well in the heat and delivers six months or more of flowers.
These perennial Sweet Williams are a quantum leap in breeding. We would go so far as to say they were super powered! They offer masses of flowers for a long period and are exceptionally strong and vigorous. They are the most heat tolerant variety we have seen in a long time. What’s more it is versatile, you can plant in beds, along pathways, underneath roses or in pots.
Dianthus ‘Jolt Series’ grows best in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. They thrive in full sun, though, in warmer climates it is a good idea to protect them from the hot afternoon rays. Water in well, then once established they are dry tolerant.
Regular cutting of flowers promotes healthy growth and perennial propensities. Add some fertiliser during the flowering season for best blooms. Cut back to half in autumn, after the flowering has finished.
The botanical name Dianthus is from the Greek; Dios for god and anthos for flower: God’s Flower.
