Raspberry Fire Dianthus is a Bustani Plant Farm selection out of seedlings that are a few generations down the road from Fire Witch, a cultivar with which we?ve had great success. It sports flowers of a unique pinkish red color with leaves that are an attractive blue. Flowers appear heavy in spring then intermittently through summer and fall, more if spent blooms removed. The parent Fire Witch and its offspring tolerate heat and humidity better than most Dianthus. This species is often called Cheddar Pink, owing its name to a population that grows in Cheddar Gorge in Somerset England, the same area known for its famous cheese.
