Why We Love It

Introduce the distinctive deep pink petals of Dianthus Vivid Bright Life to your home.

You’ll be filled with happiness as these flowers bloom and emit their spicy aromas from spring through to autumn.

These blossoms sprout from evergreen foliage – all while attracting the bees and butterflies with their nectar-rich cores.

For this reason they're a perfect addition to a wildlife-friendly garden.

A wonderful addition to any garden border flower bed or patio the hardy Dianthus Vivid Bright Life is a real eye-catcher thanks to its unmistakable pink bursts of colour.

It usually grows to between 20 cm and 25 cm in height and spread.

How to Plant

For the most part, Dianthus Vivid Bright Life is not a fussy plant. Like most Dianthus, it’s resistant to drought and it will grow in most types of soil – just pick soil or compost that’s alkaline if you can and this will help it to grow strong and blossom brightly. Pick a spot that’s either sunny or set in dappled shade and it will soon come back year after year.

Into the Ground

Pick a compost that’s alkaline-based (organic if you can) and grab your spade and your watering can to get cracking with the Dianthus Vivid Bright Life.

  1. Choose a spot in the ground that’s in the sun or semi-shade.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball and add some compost into the base.
  3. Remove your plant from its pot.
  4. Place it carefully into the hole.
  5. Add more compost to secure it, then give it a good water to help it to settle.

Into a Pot

You’ll need your trowel and your watering can, plus an alkaline compost to pot your Dianthus Vivid Bright Life.

  1. Add plenty of compost into your pot.
  2. Dig a hole double the size of the rootball.
  3. Pop your plant carefully into the hole.
  4. Return some compost to secure your plant's rootball.
  5. Water your plant to help it to settle.
