Beauties® Olivia® Dianthus

Dianthus caryophyllus 'Shkdia 0912'

Vibrant, two-toned flowers, creamy white with bright burgundy banding, cover a neat mound of green foliage. Great fragrance for bouquets and boutonnieres. Hardy and weather resistant. Jazzes up patio tubs and borders early in the season, often reblooming when the weather cools again in fall. Butterfly friendly!
