Description

The whopping, spiky football-like heads of this petalless sweet William make this one of my favourite foliage plants. Along with Dianthus 'Green Trick', this makes a great evergreen pot filler for winter and spring. With green domes twice the size of 'Green Trick' it's a tip-top cut flower too.

Care Tips

Water once a week and mulch once established to keep the soil moist. A balanced liquid feed every couple of months will encourage more blooms. Cut flowers for the vase or deadhead regularly.
