    • I purchased 8 of these from a local nursery, 5 died shortly after planting. To replace those 5 I ordered directly from PW. One of those five and two more of the original 8 have now died as well. Of 13 total plants purchased and planted 8 bloomed then died and only 5 remain. There are other dianthus planted in the same area, next to these, which are doing fantastically. Not sure how many will survive to winter much less come back next year. I would love to have the dynamic splash of red in this bed but if they always die then I will make do with something else. If all 5 come back next year and are healthy I'll consider replanting the same, if not then moving on to the next option.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • This is the first year I planted Maraschino Dianthus and, so far, I love them. They stand out with a deep red colored flower and have bloomed for 1 month, so far. I am buying more now.
