Orange Sherbet Chaubaud Dianthus Plants

Call us old fashioned, but we adore Carnations. Their clove-like fragrance is gorgeous, and the petals are sweet and edible.

Orange Sherbet Chaubaud Carnations (Dianthus) are of course totally gorgeous but let's get to the part you can't see: they smell amazing. They smell like cloves, which is a warm, spicy, woodsy, minty-peppery-sweet smell that is just divine. Added bonus: it helps keeps bugs away. So plant these babes in pots on your front stoop or balcony, or out back at the edge of your flower patches, where you sit with your scotch in the evenings and contemplate what a glorious sensory experience your garden is this season because you planted these frilly, single-and-double mixed, peachy-punch, candy-striped bloomers.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, with well-draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the late spring, once the soil has warmed up. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms Mid-summer through frost
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick blooms to encourage more
Extra Credit Trim back faded foliage and stems until the plant is about 1/2 the size in fall for over-wintering
