Thanks to you I know it's verbena. And, yes, dianthus.

I love your verbena, real compact. I get more sprawling and tall plants. I wonder if its the radiation difference in our light?

This west is different than my other gardens because its poor heavy soil and lots of heat late in the day. I think the cosmos would have flowered earlier elsewhere too. I noticed lots of cosmos blooms on my neighbor's south side. And my northernmost plant (still hasn't bloomed) seems to be stretching upward looking for sun.
I haven't done verbena before but I think this area would be a little difficult for any plant.

Verbena works great there I think. Have you gave them a good smell, one of my favorites!

I just did. Wow!! I thought I could smell alyssum walking along the path. But it's definately the verbena. Much sweeter than the alyssum too.

I love them, like a bag of fruit
