(aka: originally introduced as Dianthus 'Red Devil') This 2007 Plant Delights introduction was discovered here as a flower mutation on our patch of Dianthus 'Feuerhexe' (Firewitch). Our trials have shown it to be identical to the 2006 PPA Plant of the Year, Dianthus 'Feuerhexe', except in flower color, which is a lovely cherry-red instead of the typical pink. The tight mats of powder-blue foliage are topped in late April with 8" tall cherry-red (RHS 66A) flowers that nearly obscure the foliage and perfume the garden with a spicy clove-like fragrance. As with the parent, we see sporadic rebloom through summer and into fall...a continual hummingbird delight.
