Plant Information

Raspberry Surprise and Raspberry Swirl are both known for their strong growth and long blooming season, plants are only 6 to 8 tall. the two are great grown together.

Dianthus is the botanical name of a great group of flowers that includes wild Sweet William, the pinks, and of course, the carnations. Some of the pinks have been in gardens since Elizabethan times, and of today the carnation is a mainstay of the florist trade. Dianthus species are not at all hard to grow, and once they're happy in your garden, theyll return every year with more and more color and fragrance.

Seeds? Yes, we have the meadow favorite, Wild Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) in our wildflower seed department. Its a favorite biennial that creates waves of magnificent colors (several colors and bicolors) in wildflower meadows. And its a snap to grow.

Comments about American Meadows Raspberry Swirl Dianthus:

These plants arrived as plugs. It is not a plant as stated on the website. It remains to be seen whether or not they survive. I have planted them along the rock garden walkway.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
