Dianthus isensis 'Dancing Geisha'


Availability : Available

Description :

Synonym: Dianthus × cincinnatus f. isensis

Native to Japan, this selection was introduced into Belgium around 1850. In 2015, to our great delight, it was updated by German nursery Jelitto.

Dianthus isensis 'Dancing Geisha' is an out-of-the-ordinary plant which produces an extravagant flowering (from July to October) of simple, disproportionately large blooms that can grow up to 8 centimetres in diameter!

The petals – which can be pink, white, red or a mix of colours – are deeply cut into thin strips sometimes well beyond the middle of the blade.

This pink is as pretty as it is easy to grow and likes all good friable, fertile garden soil in a well-exposed spot in sun to partial shade. Hardy. Not fragrant.

We suggest you might like to grow this unusual pink as border edging or in pots as a novelty.


It has a short life span, so regularly dead heading will keep it going for longer. You can easily propagate it from seed (make sure you collect them) or by taking cuttings from the sterile shoots.

PS As the plant is grown from seeds, we don't know what colour the flowers will be. Surprise, surprise!
