Coconut Surprise Dianthus Growing and Maintenance Tips

Thrives in average moisture, a well-drained soil, in full sun. Drought tolerant once established. Can tolerate some shade, but will often grow leggy and not bloom as prolifically. Adding lime to the soil will benefit the plant and removing spent flowers will extend the bloom time. A low maintenance perennial with no serious disease and insect issues.
