AMERICAN PIE GEORGIA PEACH PIE is a compact, hybrid border carnation that features 2" wide, fragrant, pale peach-pink, single blooms with a contrasting, dark coral center ring and serrated petal margins. The blooms are held on thin but sturdy stems that resist flopping. Mature plants will reach around 1' tall and spread to fill a similar area. The main bloom period in late spring and early summer is followed by sporadic reblooming through the rest of the summer and into fall with consistent deadheading. Good fresh cut flower for small bouquets or boutonnières.
Shear off old flowering stems and approximately 1/3 of the foliage after blooming. Foliage will quickly recover and look nice, even into winter. Prefers loose and sandy alkaline soils. Can be divided in spring every 2-3 years.
Has a strong sweet clove scent
