KAHORI RED is a hybrid pink variety with fantastic flower colour. They are deep carmine to magenta red, semi-double, about 2 cm across, and come out from mid May. The main flowering season is June when this mounding perennial is covered with flowers. Then they open one by one until August atop very short stems, only a few centimeters above thin, evergreen, medium green foliage.

Dwarf pinks love free draining but not very dry, neutral to slightly alkaline soils. They respond well to reasonable fertilizing when flowers are produced, and benefit from light shearing after flowering. Hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4).
