A walters introduction with excellent blue green foliage and deep red double flowers on compact scapes it looks to have grat-plumarius parentage, one of the best looking new dianthus we have seen in a while.

We have been quite impressed with the performance of this Dianthus x allwoodii (Dianthus plumarius x caryophyllus) in our summer tolerance trials, which usually make short work of exterminating most dianthus. Dianthus 'Frosty Fire' makes a tight 15" wide mound of very silvery blue foliage, topped in spring with 6" tall, bright cherry red, fragrant flowers. If the plants are deadheaded, we have even seen some summer and fall reblooming. Dianthus 'Frosty Fire' is totally unfazed by our brutal heat and humidity...one of the best rock garden dianthus that we have ever grown!
