Common Name: Cheddar Pink Family: Caryophyllaceae (The Pink Family)

Dianthus  'Wicked Witch'
Zoom In Photo:

Sometimes it's oh so good to be wicked! This new cultivar is identical to the Perennial Plant of the Year for 2006, D. 'Firewitch', in all but flower colour. In this case 'Wicked Witch' has bright cherry red flowers instead of the typical magenta. They bloom over a long period and will rebloom sporadically through the summer and into the fall. The flowers are clove-scented and are held over luscious blue-grey evergreen foliage.
