(Pinks) Whether you are painting the town or painting your landscape, we have just the flower to give you full coverage of color. Dianthus ‘Paint the Town Red’ features ¾ – 1 inch deep magenta-red flowers with serrated edges. The Paint the Town series of Dianthus have been bred for their increased heat tolerance and superior flower coverage. Hardy in zones 4-9, planted in full sun to part shade locations, Dianthus ‘Paint the Town Red’ can handle the heat. The bluish green foliage is unlike any other Dianthus in this family. Standing 6-8 inches tall and creating a spreading mound up to 18 inches wide, the solid mat of flower color will ‘wow’ your early summer garden. Once your dianthus is done blooming, give it a light trim and wait for a rebloom later in the summer. Dianthus has low to average water needs and is a perfect addition to hillsides as well as borders, mass plantings and in container gardens. If deer are a problem, no worries, Dianthus ‘Paint the Town Red’ is a deer-resistant perennial. These easy to grow perennials attract butterflies as well as being fragrant, cut a few stems and bring them indoors to place in a vase. Dianthus ‘Paint the Town Red’ is a Proven Winners® Perennial.
