Blankets of solid color are the highlight of the Proven Winners Paint the Town series of Dianthus pinks. Paint the Town Fuchsia will give you swaths of purple-pink color starting in early summer and continuing for weeks. The foliage of Dianthus is also evergreen so the remainder of the year pinks maintain a soft and full looking ground cover. For those wanting even more color, pinks can be sheared back after the first bloom to produce another flush of color before the fall.

Paint the town Fuchsia is the perfect size to edge the front of the sunny border and use in combination containers and is one of the earliest Dianthus to bloom, producing ¾-1” wide, single vibrant purple-pink flowers and incredibly serrated petals. Flowers completely cover the plant when it’s in peak. Its glaucous blue foliage set it apart from other Dianthus of its type.
