Introduced to home gardeners in early 2014 by Renee's Garden, ‘Lace Perfume’, this dainty dianthus, is the result of years of work by British plant breeder Howard Lupton, who has worked in the seed industry for more than 30 years.
‘Lace Perfume’ offers up a mixture of more than 10 vibrant colors, some solid and others two-tone. Plants have a sturdy branching habit, making them great for bouquets, beds and borders. Cut this beauty back after its first flowering for repeat blooming.
