Another outstanding introduction from the world-renowned Dianthus breeder 'Whetmans'. Advances in breeding techniques and dedicated programs for Dianthus have led to the production of this stunning variety.
D.‘Sugar Plum’ is a beautifully fragrant selection, easy to grow and exceptionally hardy. A compact form with stunning mid pink, frilled flowers highlighted with cherry central markings on mid length stems, making it ideal as a cut flower bringing the delightful scent indoors. This variety also has grey leaves that set off the flowers beautifully.
The flowers look great and last well as a cut flower, and by removing spent flowers regularly, this will encourage the plant to continue to flower for an extended period.
