Hi plant friends!

Driving around the neighborhood I spotted this plant I really liked, the one behind the feathergrass with the small purple flowers. What is it?

(Apologies for the poor picture, i didnt want to look like a creep taking a picture of someone's front yard🤣)

Looks like it might be a Dianthus to me. No idea what variety though. You might check out local nurseries & big box stores to see if any of them sell something similar.

Rather than apologize for poor photo quality, why not just knock on the door and let the people know that you like their plant and would be interested to know more about it? Most folks I know are only too happy to talk about their plants. Shrug!

Back when I had a really pretty yard, I was always flattered when people knocked on the door to ask about my plants. You may make someone very happy. Or not. Give it a try.

It looks like it could be,
Cheddar Pink (Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Bath's Pink')
Some Dianthus don't do well in the heat and humidity of the south, but 'Bath's Pink' is a proven performer. Another good cultivar for the south is,
Cheddar Pink (Dianthus gratianopolitanus 'Feuerhexe')
