Dianthus barbatus Sweet William

Over the years my red, white and pink sweet william have crossed and reseeded. I love to see what interesting new color patterns they produce.

Wow! So beautiful! Smiling I read that D. barbatus tends to be a short lived perennial, so letting them cross and reseed sounds like the way to go. Smiling

One of the flowers I grew up with, growing in Mom's garden. Indeed they produce many patterns and shades when left on their own.
