(Dianthus hybridus)
EXCLUSIVE - A new, highly fragrant dianthus from our elite British breeder, these lovely flowers have dainty laced and fringed blossoms that look like softly colored snowflakes. Lace Perfume entices with a heady, spicy/ sweet clove-like fragrance that wafts seductively in the air. The sturdy branching plants grow 12 to 18 inches tall with flowers in rose, lilac, soft pink, white and many delicate bicolors. When cut for bouquets, the lacy blossoms of these fragrant flowers seem to arrange themselves.

BEST TO START INDOORS

In early spring, 8 weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Cover 1/4 inch deep. Keep moist but not soggy and cool, 60-70°F (15-21°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to go outside. Once large enough to handle, transplant seedlings 2 to 3 inches apart into deeper containers or pots so root systems can develop. Feed every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. When 3 to 4 inches tall, acclimate to outdoors, then plant in full sun about 10 inches apart in fertile, well-drained soil.

 

TO START OUTDOORS

Sow seeds only in a well protected, finely textured seed bed once frost danger is over. Cover very lightly and keep evenly moist. Tend seedlings carefully and when large enough to handle, thin or transplant 8 to10 inches apart in full sun.

 

GROWING NOTES

Sow perennial Lace Perfume in early spring for summer blooms or sow at midsummer for spring flowers the following season. These lovely fringed flowers will rebloom lavishly if cut back after the first flush of flowers. Enjoy their enticing sweet/ spicy perfume by keeping bouquets close to where you walk or sit.
