Anyone tried the new dianthus Fruit Punch series?

Hannibal, NY(Zone 6a)

I'd like feedback, please, if you have. How well do they grow for you. Do they need more water than normal dianthus. Any comments about them you may have. Thanks

Pomegranate Kiss
Dragon Fruit
Coconut Punch
Apple Slice
Sangria Splash and some others.

Here's Pomegranate Kiss, and a whole flat of Pomegranate Kiss, LOL.

No one? They are quite new.

Well, I will report back on how well they do here.

Those look great. Please post more pics as they bloom, etc!

Hannibal, NY(Zone 6a)

Thanks, I will.

Silly me didn't even realize there was a dianthus forum.

Salem, OR(Zone 8b)

I didn't know that either! I find, however, that generally I get a lot more responses/feedback when I post everything in the perennials forum (my favorite forum), than the subspecialties.

Thanks! So far they look like they will be prodigious bloomers, so hoping for the best.

I planted Pomegranit Kiss last year. The bunnies liked it last fall but seem to be leaving it alone.
My plants are slow growing now but I check everyday to see if they are putting up buds. It might be too early here or they are just not doing well.

If I can find this variety, I will plant it. I have enjoyed dianthus for years. Lucieee {;^)

I think you should be seeing it in the garden centers this year, Luciee. If you do find one, please let us know.

Thanks! Luciee (;^))
