Dianthus barbatus 'Sooty' - sweet William

DESCRIPTION:  Annual, biennial, short-lived perennial depending on how it like the conditions. Straight stems topped with feathery foliage surrounding a cluster of flat open flowers, deep maroon. Foliage has purple tints too.
USE IN: Summer bedding, pots and containers, front of mixed beds.
LOCATION: Plant in full sun to part shade, protect from hot afternoon sun in warm climates. Like its garden pink and carnation relatives, it likes a loamy sandy free-draining neutral soil for best results. Completely frost-hardy.
CARE:  Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Regular feeding promotes healthy growth; deadhead any spent flowers you haven't cut to enjoy indoors. Cut all stems back to half in autumn after flowering has finished, and add some fertiliser for a second round of blooms.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  35 cm H x 30 cm W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, young healthy plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
