Dianthus gratianapolitanus 'Feuerhexe'

Feuerhexe is German for Firewitch, which was chosen by the Perennial Plant Association for its 2006 Plant of the Year.

It has bright-pink flowers, which appear later and last longer than those of most cultivars, and they have an especially spicy fragrance.

At maturity, clumps stand at 6" high and 12-18" wide.

To keep flowers blooming 6 weeks or more, deadhead at least weekly; and to keep clumps vigorous, divide every 2-3 years.

Good air circulation and drainage work best to prevent any problems. If rust occurs, dust plants in the spring with sulfur.
