Dianthus: Floral Lace Series

FN 2.6 Dianthus Picotee2 park seed
‘Floral Lace Picotee’

We like big blooms, and Blue Ribbon Floral Lace has the largest of any chinensis x barbatus Dianthus. Because this series is a cross of the two species we get an abundance of flowers that thrive in the cooler temps of early spring—a win-win. After Pansies, this is a reliable crop for early spring and throughout the spring as well.

‘Floral Lace Rose’

For those who favor a neat, well-manicured look Dianthus is a suitable choice—it stays put, with a nicely mounded habit. Now, if you think that means boring, think again and take a look at these lacy, serrated edges. They breathe texture into a classic garden design. We also like the way the bright green foliage makes the flowers pop.

FN 2.2 DIA Floral Lace Purple 0001
‘Floral Lace Purple’

These plants bloom without fail all through the spring and early summer, and are great for full sun situations, including rock gardens.
