Notes:

Feeling like I should know what this is but it is escaping me, even though I’m sure I planted it as part of one of my wildflower collections. Plant(s) is/are about 2 feet tal with multiple spicules. First picture is just beginning to open, second picture is more open. As you can see blooms are pink and/or white. Looks a bit like buckwheat but I don’t quite think it is. I could be wrong. It has happened once or twice. 😉

    Sweet William it is! Thanks! I don’t have to feel so sheepish after all. Just saccharine… 😉

    I have a friend who says it’s phlox. If so, I really feel sheepish. Get it? Sheepish? I’ve never had upright phlox, only creeping…so I’ve never seen upright phlox up close. I’m thinking she’s probably right. It’s opened up more and about half the blooms are a great pink and half are white with the pink stripes. Very pretty!

    This is DIANTHUS, a reliasle perennial; also comes in a dark pink or red. Give it sun.
