I am trying to identify this plant. It noticed it in the middle of March and it flowered around the first of April. It popped up in a wildflower bed I planted last spring. I do not believe it is anything I planted though. The beautiful flowers has a very nice fragrance. I believe there will be more flowers popping out in the head.There are several more in the bed that have not flowered yet. There just happens to be an assassin bug hanging around on one of the flowers. I have spent a few hours on the web trying to identity it with no luck. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and effort.

Dianthus barbatus (Sweet William) I believes, mostly they are biennial or perennial, but there are annual cultivar also, it's a great plant

Thanks for the reply tofitropic. I believe you hit the nail on the head. Evidently it was in a pack of wildflower seeds I planted last year. They did not come up until this year though. I think it is a lovely plant/flower. I hope I can get some seeds from them and spread them around. That particular plant seems to have some kind of damage on the leaves. Thanks again. Thank You!
Good luck in all your gardening endeavors.
