Dianthus caryophyllus (Carnation ‘Can Can Scarlet’)

Life: Perennial, possibly Annual

Size: 12-14"

Light: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Water: Average

Soil: Any, Neutral to Slightly Alkaline

An extremely fragrant garden carnation, its spicy-floral fragrance with clove-like nuances will almost fill a room when used in a bouquet. The bright red, 2" double flowers contrast beautifully with the grey-green foliage and are excellent for cuttings. Though it is heat-tollerant, it is unknown if this variety will prove to be perennial this far south.
