The Dianthus Amazon is a tall, showy flower with a large screen of flowers that are available in four attractive colors.

Dianthus Amazon Neon Purple and Amazon Neon Cherry practically glow, their colors are so intense and vivid.



Each stem features multiple blooms that open up stem to tip – the bottom flowers will be fully bloomed and naturally blend to a more closed bloom on the utmost upper tip. That is exactly the reason why many floral designers love to work with the Dianthus Amazon series.

Amazon can be produced year-round and is the best dianthus you can grow for Summer production. Whether you’re looking for a high-appeal filler for bouquets or an exceptional product for monoculture bunches, Amazon is the one you want!
