16-24" tall 85-95 days to harvest Dianthus barbatus

Creating a carpet of luminescent petals swaying in the breeze, we swoon over these astonishing blooms & the pollinators do, too. If you’re looking for a  shimmering cloud of color mid-summer to frost, look no further: only 16 to 24 inches tall, Volcano Mix dianthus thrives in gardens and containers alike. And they’re edible! Reminiscent of mild clove, pluck petals from their sepals for salads, desserts & summer drinks. These fully double blooms are beautiful as well as bountiful, perfect for bouquets; harvest as just a few flowers open on a head and enjoy up to two weeks in the vase.

Dianthus seeds are easy to save, enjoy our video below! And if you haven’t noticed our free online course, Saving Our Seeds, Saving Ourselves, it’s here for you and for all generations to come.

Full Sun. Annual in Zone 5.
