Earlier blooming than most dianthus and Everlast has a longer bloom period than any other perennial dianthus. Excellent performance even under harsh weather conditions.

Care & Maintenance:
Deadhead to clean and promote bloom. Use as cut flowers for arrangements. Fertilize every two weeks in the blooming period.

* Low Water Requirement:
After this plant is well established, it has a lower than average water requirement. A good layer of mulch will also help reduce water needs.
