    Sweet Williams - Dianthus Barbatus

    Sweet Williams add a burst of color to a flower garden or landscape. The average height of these flowers is 7” to 18”. Their height and compact size make them an ideal choice of flower for containers or planters. These flowers make an attractive border along a walkway or garden area. They work well as a filler for the garden or for a large container of mixed plants and flowers. These flowers, with their ruffle-edged blooms, add a touch of nostaligia or Victorian charm to a garden. They can be grown successfully in zones 3-9. They should be planted when the danger of frost has passed. Plants should be spaced approximately 6 inches apart. These flowers like full sun, rich loose soil, good drainage, and a monthly fertilizing schedule. They are likely to need regular irrigation , but should not be over-watered. The leaves on these flowers are thin and slender and range in color from light green to dark green. There's an ideal balance of size between the leaves and the blooms. The stunning clusters of pink, white, red, purple, burgundy and bi-colored blooms are very attractive but do not endure for as long a time as some other flowers. To get the maximum amount of pleasure from these flowers, you can cut them back after the first blooming and a second flowering period will occur. This allows you to enjoy a kaleidoscope of color in your yard from spring through summer. Birds, bees, and butterflies will become frequent visitors to your garden if you include Sweet Williams in the mix of flowers. As you walk through a garden where Sweet Williams are planted, an intense spicy aroma is likely to capture your attention. These dainty, durable, aromatic flowers are often planted in a cutting garden or a cottage garden.
