Dianthus Neon Star is a hybrid dianthus that typically grows in an upright rounded mound to 8-12" tall and to 6-12 inches wide. It is noted for its long summer bloom of fragrant fluorescent pink flowers. Flowers bloom from late spring to early summer with continued but somewhat sporadic additional bloom to fall. Narrow, linear, gray-green leaves typically form a dense mound of grass-like foliage. Leaves are evergreen in warm winter climates. The common name of pink for plants in the genus Dianthus is in probable reference to the flower petal margins (they appear to have been cut with pinking shears) and not to flower color. This is a plant you will love for many years.
