Funky Dianthus Blossom

Funky Dianthus Blossom (Dianthus gratianopolitanus (Cheddar Pink))

My wicked witch dianthus has the standard bloom to the right. These two were twisted and strange but I just loved them. Who knows what happened, but they were welcome. This one is growing slower than the other so maybe its difficulties resulted in this abnormality.

Thanks. I love this one, and it overwinters so well. I've got them planted along a bank now. Can't wait to see how they do.

Me too. I have a fall bloomer called siberian blue that's more a lavender and very tall, 18 inches. Its been reseeding very successfully. I'll have to get some pics up so you can check it out.
