Sprays of single white blooms bred specifically for use as a cut flower. This dianthus produces one-inch flowers with a serrated petal edge giving it an old-fashioned lacy look. The long stems are desirable for fresh bouquets. 'Melody White' will mature at a mid-size garden height of 22-24 inches and should be quite heat and cold tolerant.
