The bright pink flowers of the perennial Dianthus ‘Firewitch’ glow against its needle like-silvery foliage. A good place for this plant is in the front of flower beds. Mix in taller cool-colored blue petunias, violas or pansies for sturdy spring beauty in your design. This durable low grower is a plant of the year winner designated by the Perennial Plant Growers Association. Plant it in a sunny spot in your garden and it will thrive with one good watering per week once you get it well established. Try the Pot-in-Pot method and rotate it to the front of your mixed border when it is blooming heaviest. You can maintain Firewitch in the original soil and container for 2 years if you don't kill the microorganisms in the compost blend by using too much salt based fertilizer.
