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).

Plant Information
(11”tall x 11”wide) There’s nothing old-fashioned about Scent First® ‘Romance’ Dianthus. The ruffled blooms of this Garden Pink unfurl in late spring in shades of salmon pink with a crimson center and are bred specifically for scent and compact habit. Dianthus makes a fantastic cut flower, and the spicy, evocative fragrance is sure to encourage you to cut a few of those sturdy stems for inside vases. Grow in well-drained, alkaline to neutral soil in the front of a sunny bed or border or get creative – Dianthus love cracks between paving stones or bricks. The spiky, silvery blue foliage is attractive during the entire growing season and will make a great contrast against yellow flowers, such as coreopsis, as summer rolls on. ‘Romance’ Dianthus is deer resistant and will re-bloom if deadheaded and fed after its initial spring bloom. A terrific perennial choice for containers too.
