Sweet Williams is a family of dianthus. It thrives in loamy, slightly alkaline soil with sun to partial shade.

“Divine flower” – this is roughly how the botanical name of Dianthus barbatus can be translated. This name is no coincidence, because standing in full bloom, sweet William even outstrip roses as “Queen of Flowers”. The robust summer flowers have already played their charm in old cotton gardens. Their popularity led to the fact that the carnation family is now available in numerous cultured variations in specialist shops. In addition to different heights, plants with simple or double flowers are also available. But also the color spectrum of the different types is extremely versatile.

Location:  The bushy growing plants need full sun to form their lush bloom. Even in the light partial shade, the growth of the plant suffers and its resistance to diseases and pests decreases. Sweet William can also be cultivated in the planter on the balcony or terrace. Here, too, the plants need direct and long-lasting sun exposure.

Grows: Sow the seeds under cover or directly in the ground from April to May. Plant in a permanent position in 12" x 12" spacing from July to August. The plants bloom from June to August. The varieties tolerate any type of soil and prefer sunny or semi-shaded locations.
