This delectable new Carnation is a treat for the senses, cascading up to 2 1/2 feet from baskets, windowboxes, and other containers! The huge, fully double 3-inch blooms have a rich, evocative clove scent that may remind you of old-fashioned hard candy (or Thanksgiving baking!).
Very long-lived, these blooms arise all over the trailing plant, offering great color contrast with the small, dusty silver-green foliage. A splendid sight in full sun to part shade,Clove Drops erupts into blooms of red, bright rose, pink, burgundy, salmon, yellow, and white!
Frost-tolerant and carefree, this half-hardy perennial (grown as an annual) will bloom long into winter in warm climates. Great for fall holiday aroma without the calories!
This vigorous plant needs full sun for best flowering. Start seeds indoors in late winter and transplant after last frost, or sow seeds directly when the ground warms. Blooms in 5 months or less from sowing! To overwinter, cut them back after bloom and mulch heavily. Packet is 25 seeds.
