Sweet William (Dianthus) Double Mix Seed is perfect for anybody looking to add a large range of color and excitement to their garden. It blooms in clumps, creating large balls of colorful flowers that are contrasted against their beautiful bright green foliage. In addition to a large variety of colors, some of the blooms will even have two different colors on the petals, such as purple and white, or pink and red. The tall variety will reach a height of around two feet, and bloom throughout the summer, making them perfect for a border flower.
While it is a biennial, it will re-seed itself for years to come, making it a low-maintenance addition to your garden. This is by far one of the most popular cut flowers around, as the dome of blooms look beautiful in a vase or bouquet, and will last for a longer time than most once cut. Soil that reaches deep and is the best choice for these plants, as is full sun. However, in warmer climates, like the southern United States, an afternoon shade will be welcomed.
