Photo 6 of 18Dianthus: Known for their long flowering season these gorgeous fringed flowers can last from spring to fall. Dianthus is a very fragrant plant working well in a scented, butterfly, cut flower or heirloom garden. The plants bloom not only solid colors, like white, red, rose, lavender and yellow, but also bicolor with interesting edging, darker centers and streaks. Stem rot is a concern so plant in a well-drained clay or sandy soil and do not mulch all the way around the plant. USDA Hardiness Zones: 3 to 10 (Pictured: Neon Star)
