Carnation Supertrouper

Super Troup CarmenCarnation Super Trouper™ produces vibrant bursts of colour. If the saying “The earth laughs in flowers” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) is true, then someone has been having a good chuckle as these true, potted carnations do not hold back with their vibrant colours. Like the ‘spray’ and ‘standard’ carnation varieties the ‘pot’ carnation belongs to the genus Dianthus. The Dianthus family are versatile plants that are well known in gardens and nurseries

Super Trouper™ is easy growing and long-blooming, dwarf hybrid carnations. Regular feeding will encourage blooms that are borne on short sturdy stems atop neat clumps of linear, waxy blue–green foliage. Prompt removal of faded flower stems will encourage heavier reblooming and more burst of colour in your garden.

Super Trouper™ carnations are best grown outdoors in the sun and will provide months of continual blooms. They have a good cold tolerance and can handle a light frost.

Carnations require a well drained, well aerated soil with regular watering; however keep the plants slightly drier in the cooler winter months.

Carnations can be susceptible to root rot when watered too much…. remember that yellow leaves are a clear sign of over watering!

That being said that have a good drought resistance once established.

Add “bursts of laughter” to your garden by using:

Carnation Super Trouper™ Carmen – vibrant red flowers and Carnation Super Trouper™ Sorbet – gentle plum-peach flowers.
