February 2015 – Danziger adds two new colours to its Dianthus plumarius DelilahTM series: ‘Bicolor Magenta,’ with striking magenta and burgundy blooms, and ‘Bicolor Purple,’ with uniquely vivid light pink and purple flowers. Both varieties boast small, semi-double flowers with intense flower power. Delilah varieties bloom approximately two weeks earlier than the classic D. caryophyllus-derived pot varieties and flower perpetually. The series is excellent both as a bedding plant and in containers. Varieties are well adapted to a wide range of conditions and hardy in Zones 4-9.
