Many of the English hybrid dianthus turn up their toes at the mere thought of a hot, humid NC summer, but Dianthus 'Neon Star' has been a delightful surprise in our trials. From dianthus breeder John Whetman of Devon, England comes a new dianthus that makes a 7" tall tight mound of grey-blue foliage, topped in spring with 1"+ flowers of the most fluorescent neon pink that we have seen on a live plant. Imagine Britney Spears' lipstick and you get the idea. We think this will quickly become a favorite for southern gardeners...the dianthus, that is.
