Dianthus caryophyllus ‘Cinnamon Red Hots’, which is a day-neutral plant that perpetually develops flowers under most environmental conditions ( Bunt and Cockshull, 1985 ). In contrast, other perennial plants such as Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’ do

flowered under 9- and 16-h photoperiods after a 15-week treatment at 5 °C (Cameron et al., unpublished data). Because photoperiod did not influence flowering percentage or flowering time, D. gratianopolitanus ‘Bath's Pink’ was classified as a day-neutral
