105-112 days. Telstar Series Mix dianthus seeds boast elegant 1-2 inch blooms of fuchsia, velvet, magenta, and white to reinvigorate any stale garden this summer. Telstar Series Mix dianthus seeds are easy to grow, heat tolerant, and irresistible to hummingbirds, butterflies, and other important pollinators. Telstar Series Mix dianthus seeds are an ideal grow to cascade from hanging baskets, planters, and window boxes. Dianthus is one of the most cultivated flowers in the entire world and Telstar Series Mix promises the boldest pinks available.
Telstar Series Mix dianthus seeds can be sown immediately after the frost or, for earliest blooms, start indoors 8-10 weeks prior. Germination will take 7-14 days then transplant and harden off seedlings once there are two sets of true leaves to a partially sunny spot in the garden or equally bright place indoors. Lightly press 4-5 Telstar Series Mix dianthus seeds 10 inch apart into average, medium moist, and well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Do not overwater because Telstar Series Mix dianthus is susceptible to crown rot, rust, and leaf spots caused by saturation if not properly drained or ventilated in crowded gardens. Plants will benefit from deadheading and partial shade during long summer days. Dianthus has no serious pests, but watch for slugs and snails. Telstar Series Mix dianthus seeds mature in 105-112 days as 8-10 inch tall cascading mounds with a 10 inch spread of unique 1-2 inch blooms.
Dianthus chinensis x barbatus, sometimes referred to as Rainbow Pink or just simply Pink, is native to many of the moderate climates of eastern Asia including China, Mongolia, Korea, and much of eastern Russia. Dianthus chinensis x barbatus is strikingly similar in appearance to its cousin of the same Dianthus genus, Sweet William flower. Dianthus has been popularly cultivated throughout Asia for hundreds of years, but has since been naturalized throughout most of the world including one variety of Dianthus barbatus which thrives in the North American arctic.
