Dianthus barbatus 'Dunetti' has deep crimson-red flowers edged in rose and accented with a white eye and blue stamens. The rich color goes well with many other perennials and annuals in the June garden.

Dianthus barbatus is a must-have plant for the cottage garden. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

Sweet William 'Dunetti' is easy to grow. In my experience, it sometimes works better to sow the seeds directly in the garden rather than indoors, even though outdoor sowing has a lower germination rate. It depends on the garden conditions like weather and soil. Try it both ways to see what works for you.

Dianthus barbatus is a biennial or short-lived perennial that can live for several years. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 3-9.
