Dianthus 'Devon Xera' (Fire Star)
The fire red flowers of this Dianthus have dark eyes that contrast nicely with its gray-green foliage. While it attracts butterflies, it is deer resistant. Flowers in red shades appear between June and August. PP#14895.
Dianthus species, reminiscent of our grandmothers’ gardens, are excellent edging and rock garden plants. Many are fragrant, and all need excellent drainage and do best in full sun and slightly alkaline soil. Short lived; best to divide every two to three years.
