I found this wildflower growing on our property near Hiawassee in the North Georgia Mountains. There was only one flower and I’ve never seen another like it. I researched several books and couldn’t find it.

    I really agree with Stone and Bobby. If this isn’t Sweet William, then I’m a monkey’s uncle.

    Edit: The problem is that there is only the single picture posted. With additional pictures of the foliage, we might decide that it actually was phlox. There are a number of wild phloxes in the area, but I haven’t seen wild dianthus…

    looks like sweet William (dianthus barbatus) to me… Not even in the same family as phlox.

    After looking at more photos of Phlox, I’ve found that Ginny is correct. This is definitely Phlox. Thanks.
