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.

(aka: originally introduced as Dianthus 'Red Devil') This new PDN introduction was discovered here as a flower mutation on our patch of Dianthus 'Feuerhexe' (Firewitch). Our trials have shown it to be identical to the 2006 PPA Plant of the Year, Dianthus 'Feuerhexe', except in flower color, which is a lovely cherry red instead of the typical pink. The tight mats of powder blue foliage are topped in late April with 8" tall spikes of clove-like fragrant cherry red (RHS 66A) flowers that nearly obscure the foliage. As with the parent, we see sporadic rebloom through summer and into fall...a continual hummingbird delight. PP 19,824
