Dianthus deltoides 'Zing Rose'
[Maiden Pinks]
Height Light
Under 12 in. Partial Sun Early Summer 3 - 9

Large, deep rose-red blooms cover the dense, somewhat upright clumps of dark green, evergreen foliage. If deadheaded, this species will flower heaviest in early summer with a rebloom in the fall. Maiden Pinks are named for their habit of partially closing their petals at dusk, like a shy maiden would. In the cooler seasons, the leaves of this cultivar tend to take on purplish-red tones and then revert back to green in spring. D. deltoides is one of the most aggressive Dianthus species, and if allowed to form seed, it will self-sow freely.

Care: Dianthus grow best in loose, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soils. Dianthus can be grown in full sun or part shade, but the foliage will not be as lush and fewer flowers will be produced if it is grown in hot, dry areas. A layer of mulch to protect the evergreen foliage but remove all of this mulch early to prevent crown rot. Dianthus can be propagated by division every few years in early spring, just as the new growth begins to appear. This is recommended because Dianthus tends to be a short-lived perennial otherwise.
