Diamond offers a longer bloom period than any other Dianthus. It is a 6-8" uniform plant with an early simultaneous blooming habit on main and lateral stems. The tight flower window gives a long lasting flush of color. Cold and heat tolerant. Diamond is shorter and earlier to flower than the Ideals. Diamond is taller and earlier to flower than the Telstars.
