All perennial plugs are healthy 1 year old plants, planted in trays. There is soil around the roots, but we recommend bringing a container for ease of transportation. As with bare root plants, we recommend transplanting plugs immediately.

Dianthus are among the best for providing color in late spring and early summer. The PRETTY POPPERS™ Series are semi-evergreen perennials and offer an abundance of red, pink, and white flowers; perfect for the front of the border.

'Cute as a Button' has semi-double, bright pink flowers have a deep red eye and serrated edges. Blue-green foliage.

In the carnation family, Dianthus cultivars deliver gorgeous single, semi-double, and fully double flowers. Singles tend to deliver more flowers while doubles are significantly larger, sometimes more than twice the size. Singles also tend to grow quicker and can appear like a carpet in the landscape at maturity.
