Dianthus 'Starbust' (Pink)

Pink 'Starbust', Starbust Pink, Promotional Series, Dianthus 'Valda Louise'


Very compact and free flowering, Dianthus 'Starbust' (Pink) is a charming evergreen perennial with masses of strongly scented, semi-double, frilly, cherry-red flowers adorned with striking pink and white patterns. Blooming from late spring to mid-summer (or later with regular deadheading), the large blossoms rise on upright stems above a low mound of grassy, silver-blue leaves. Easy to grow, and perfect for adding a splash of color in the garden, this Garden Pink is an excellent addition to the sunny border, rock garden or containers.

  • Grows up to 6-8 in. tall and wide (15-20 cm).
  • Prefers full sun and enjoys neutral to alkaline, well-drained soils. Excellent choice for hot dry sites or gravelly soils.
  • Extremely versatile, this Dianthus is ideal for beds and borders, garden edging, rock gardens, cottage gardens or containers.
  • Attracts bees and butterflies, but is ignored by deer.
  • Deadhead to prolong flowering.
