Outstanding colors with great garden performance. Telstar F1 is a hybrid Dianthus series bred to have a high degree of resistance to Phytophthora and other damp-off pathogens. Well-branched plants produce a multitude of vibrant flowers. Beautiful and tough, plants look great from container to garden. Pretty bedding flowers with contrasting colors most of the year, excellent border or accent. Does well in dry climates with full to part sun, amended well drained soil, regular water. Pick spent flowers to encourage repeat blooming all summer long.
