There are only 5 All-America Selection Classics in the world, and we are proud to say that Ideal Violet is one of them! Introduced in 1992, it was instantly recognized as a breeding breakthrough, and has never been bettered. This lovely variety was the first Dianthus ever to win the AAS Bedding Plant Award, and has been enjoyed in gardens of all climates ever since.

A cross of D. chinensis (China Pinks) and D. barbatus (Sweet William), Ideal Violet is the perfect fall and winter plant in the south, while it is unbeatable for early-spring glory in the north. Bred in the south of France where the summers are hot and the winters cold, it developed a dual tolerance of climate extremes that serves it very well indeed!

These single blooms measure about 1 1/2 inches wide, merrily fringed and shading from deep violet to magenta at the petal tips. They absolutely blanket the petite plant over their long season, beginning earlier than others and staying quite uniform in size, so that they make superb formal plantings. The plant itself is just 10 to 12 inches high and about a foot wide, growing vigorously in any sunny, well-drained spot.

Ideal Violet was bred by M. Guy Lassartesse. We are honored to make it available to your garden this season! Pkt is 15 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
