Scent First® Eternity Dianthus

Dianthus ‘Scent First Eternity’




With vibrant, rose-pink flowers and an intoxicatingly spicy-sweet fragrance, the Scent First Eternity Dianthus is a unique and beautiful way to add color to patio containers, gardens and more. 

The Scent First Eternity Dianthus features the classic, carnation-like flowers of the dianthus, with frilled layers of hot-pink. This sun-loving, low-maintenance plant blooms in spring and lasts through summer, making it a great option for floral borders, gardens, patios or entryways. And its compact, free-flowering habit means it can be planted anywhere. 

An added bonus? Butterflies love the fragrance and nectar-rich blooms. Plus, like most Dianthus plants, this Dianthus is deer-resistant, drought-resistant and hardy in zones 4-8. 


The Scent First Eternity Dianthus thrives in full sun. Find a spot with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. Plant your flowers in a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. For best performance, add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds. 

If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the size of your plant’s shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your Scent First Eternity Dianthus, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container. 


Water weekly or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it’s time to water. If your Dianthus is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
