Dianthus barbatus 'Rockin' Red' is a reliable, hardy perennial with flower that are pillar box red. It is one of the most vibrant reds ever created on a Sweet William. This new interspecific hybrid has a sweet, spicy fragrance, that fills the air, making it a great choice for flower borders in the front garden, next to driveways and garden paths. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 30cm (12"). 

Premium perennials are large plug tray plants, roughly the same size as garden ready plants like a potted plant without a pot. They will need to be acclimatised to the garden, and once all chance of frost has cleared can be planted out directly into the garden.
