How To Care for your new Super Trouper Orange Dianthus

Spring or fall are ideal times to plant your Orange Super Trouper Dianthus.  However, as long as you avoid extreme temperature you can plant almost any time of the year. Plant you Super Trouper Dianthus in growing zones 6 to 9.

This Dianthus thrives in full to part sun and is adaptable to a variety of soil, as long as it is well-drained.  Water deeply when planting and 2 times per week for the first 3 months while your plant is establishing.  Once established, water your Dianthus when dry.  Add 2-3 inches of mulch to prevent weeds and protect your plant's roots in extreme temperatures.  Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer in spring after the chance of frost has passed.  Deadheading isn't necessary, but it can increase blooms and extend bloom time.

This Dianthus is deer resistant and pollution, drought, heat, and salt tolerant.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Spider Mites and Aphids are potential problem insects for the Dianthus.  These pests can be treated naturally with neem oil, or insecticidal soap.  For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin.  Dianthus can, on occasion, encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective.  So, if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection.  Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests.  It can be effective, but the entire plant must be coated in order for this method to be effective.  Always water at the base of this plant to avoid fungal disease on the leaves.


Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Just what I wanted
I finally found these orange dianthus. I checked lowes and could not find them anywhere. I bought them here. They are the size that is specified and were packed really well. I will order again.
