How to Grow and Care for Scent First Eternity Dianthus Plant

Scent First Eternity Dianthus Plant (Dianthus ‘Scent First Eternity’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-8 outdoors

Planting

The Scent First Eternity Dianthus thrives in full sun. Find a spot with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day.

Plant your flowers in a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. For best performance, add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.

If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the size of your plant’s shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your Scent First Eternity Dianthus, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.

Watering

Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it’s time to water.

If your Dianthus is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
