Dianthus 'Oscar Dark Red' is a compact, well-branched plant that bears double, deep red blooms over a long season in the garden or in a container. Its dark green foliage forms tight mounds. Commonly known as Pinks, this fragrant perennial is great for containers. Dianthus caryophyllus 'Oscar Red' is one of our favorites.
Dianthus 'Oscar Dark Red' prefers full sun and well-drained, neutral soil. Pinks perform well in sandy or gritty conditions; avoid heavy, wet soil. Good winter drainage is required.
