The flowers colors are white, pink, rose, red, purplish, and bicolored. Sweet Williams bloom in late spring for about 4 weeks.Sweet William prefers full sun and light sandy, well drained soil. Dianthus prefer a fairly a slightly alkaline and rich soil. Shear off faded blooms and the plant may come back and bloom the following year. Plant in the spring after the last average frost date. The Sweet William easily reseeds and is always a garden guest.
