We have been quite impressed with the performance of this Dianthus x allwoodii (Dianthus plumarius x caryophyllus) in our summer tolerance trials, which usually makes short work of exterminating most dianthus. Dianthus 'Frosty Fire' makes a tight 15" wide mound of very silvery blue foliage, topped in spring with 6" tall, bright cherry red, fragrant flowers. If the plants are deadheaded, we have even seen some summer and fall reblooming...a hummingbird double delight. Dianthus 'Frosty Fire' is totally unfazed by our brutal heat and humidity...one of the best rock garden dianthus we have ever grown!
