Bright Spring Color
from Brighton, CO
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Dianthus gratianopolitanus Firewitch:
This is a welcome splash of color in the late spring - early summer! It's well worth forgiving it it's few flaws (short bloom time, necessary deadheading) for the early season splash of brilliant color it brings and its evergreen folliage the rest of the season. The clump size slowly expands over several seasons but is not at all invasive. Its bright pink color will brighten your spirits after a long cold winter, and that alone makes it a keeper!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The hard Northeast winter doesn't seem to have phased it! We didn't lose a single Dianthus. And now, despite having had no rain all spring, it's all blooming great. So healthy, hardy and drought resistant!
from Fresno, CA
Brilliant spot of color edging my sidewalk. Gets a bit dried out in summer heat, but came back nicely in the spring. Looks very pretty next to my blue fescue.
from Winthrop, WA
I put it along my driveway. We have terrible soil and little rain. With a bit of irrigation, the plants have all taken off this year with a brilliant showy display. It's fantastic contrast next to the native purples (Blue Chelan Penstamen, Lupine).

I planted two of these last summer. They lasted through winter, but haven't bloomed, as yet because it's not warm here. These are beautiful when they do, as my daughter has some.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
