The Q&A Archives: Dianthius Or Garden Pinks

Question: How do you keep dianthius or garden pinks (I believe that is another name for them) blooming all summer? They bloom for awhile then the flowers turn brown.

Answer: I'm afraid they won't bloom all summer, but if you cut back the flowers as soon as they begin to fade, the plants may send out a second flush of bloom and prolong the season by a few weeks. Good luck with your plants!
