Dianthus barbatus Sweet William

Dianthus barbatus Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus)

These self sown biennials keep on coming back each year to perfume the air on warm still days. They grow to 18" and flower all summer long. Great cut flower.

I remember that my mother was very fond of these for their scent. Lovely.
