Why plant Scent First® Coral Reef Pinks?

Coral Reef Pinks is a small Spirit that will make a big splash in your landscape. Beginning in late spring, a tidal wave of blooms will wash over your beds and borders. Rich coral-pink blossoms with a dainty white picotee edge appear in great profusion over neat, sea-green foliage. The ruffled, semi-double blooms will look so pretty at the edge of your entryway garden, atop a retaining wall, or nestled among boulders in a rock garden. Coral Reef Pinks also graces sunny spaces with a divine fragrance. The frilly flowers give off a sweet, spicy scent that smells like cloves.

Pinks are a group of perky Spirits found mostly in Europe and Asia. Although many of them have pink flowers, you might be surprised to learn that that’s not the reason for their name. Pinks get their name from the jagged edges of their petals—the blooms look like they’ve been cut with pinking shears! Their botanical name is Dianthus, which means “flower of the gods.” Pinks were favorites during your grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s day. Coral Reef is a modern version of those old favorites with more flower power. Developed by British plantsman John Whetman, it was introduced to American gardeners in 2008.

How to use Scent First® Coral Reef Pinks in the landscape?

Although Coral Reef Pinks excels as a landscape plant, you may like it even more in a container. This spunky Spirit performs marvelously in a pot. Try it, too, in a window box, where its cheerful flowers will bring color to your front garden and a delightful fragrance inside your home when you open the windows.

How To Plant Scent First® Coral Reef Pinks

Coral Reef Pinks is an easy Spirit to grow, provided a few basic needs are met. First, this plant loves full sun. A southern or western exposure will give it the bright light it craves. Second, it requires well-drained soil. No wet feet for this one. Coral Reef Pinks has low water needs once established, and it tolerates moderate periods of drought with no ill effects. Shear off the spent flowers to encourage new ones to form. The evergreen plants hold up well through all but the worst winters. If any unsightly foliage appears, remove it prior to new growth in early spring.

How To Water

Water as soon as they arrive! Dianthus plants need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.
