All of the dianthus in the American Pie™ Trio were chosen for their especially large and fragrant flowers on nice strong stems, perfect for cut flowers. Georgia Peach Pie steals hearts specifically with its coloration. Designers are loving the color coral these days. It plays well with neutral colors because even in small doses, it changes the look from bland and clinical to modern and warm. This simple pink-white bloom pops with a thin coral band, fading into a few peachy tones right around the throat. Over a neat and tidy plant, you'll get a wealth of these gorgeous blooms from early summer all the way into early fall. That means you'll have plenty of flowers, both to pick for indoor bouquets, and to draw beneficial pollinators to your garden borders. Or pot it up and bring its spicy perfume to your patio table. Thanks to this scent, deer tend not to eat dianthus. Dianthus 'Wp15 Pie45' PPAF
