A standout plant from other Sweet Williams, Dianthus Barbatus Alba with its striking snowy white balls of flowers sitting atop strong stems makes a fabulous cut flower that lasts well in a vase as well as being a wonderful border plant. Their green heads even without flowers are a striking addition to a bouquet.

Dianthus barbatus Alba prefers full sun but will perform equally well in partial shade. Growing to a height of 30 to 40cm with flowers, butterflies and bees go crazy for these flowers. Whilst this lovely plant is considered a short-lived biennial do not worry as it will set seed to ensure that this plant will always be in your garden. It is a beautiful addition to the cottage garden borders, beds and containers. Hardy so does not mind the frost once established.

Dianthus barbatus will potentially last between 14 and 21 days in a vase, sometimes longer if looked after. To ensure you get longevity, ensure the water is changed frequently. A drop of bleach in the water will help to keep the water smelling sweet as well as stopping it from going cloudy.
Trim the ends of the stem cut above a node at an angle every three days to extend the life of the flower.
If the flower is not fully open, it can be "flicked" open, by lightly flicking the petals from the top of the flower.  

Height to 40cm x 30cm Wide
