PlantHaven is bringing out three new Whetman dianthus varieties just in time for fall planting and bulking up. Slow growing outside is the lowest cost production method. Cooler outside temperatures are also going to give increased flower due to the extra winter chilling. Whetman selections have a proven track record of independent Zone 5 winter testing.
The new Whetman dianthus for 2015 include:
Dianthus ‘Superstar’ – Looking for the top three? Grow ‘Superstar’ with the two top sellers and North American tried and true classics, ‘Neon Star’ and ‘Fire Star.’
Dianthus ‘Passion’ – A go-to selection for Valentine’s Day sales.
Dianthus ‘Memories’ – Grow for Easter sales or perfect for scented Mother’s Day promotions.
