Dianthus, maybe? Tiny flowers the size of a dime in shades ranging from pinks to deep purple. Lovely! Can I propagate from these cuttings?

Yes, Dianthus. Propogate them just like the Carnations.

Can't see the foliage but if they smell really good, could be this kind, my fav of the Dianthus I've seen over the yrs:
Cheddar Pink (Dianthus gratianopolitanus)

If so, I keep increasing my little patch of it by sticking stem cuttings in the soil.

I like very much that it has so many shades of pink and purple on one stem. Though you can't see it in this photo. Dianthus typically die back when it gets hot here. How do you keep your's going in the heat, Tiffany? @purpleinopp I will try pots first.

My DD1 sent these from the flower company Bouqs, who sends out amaaaaaazing bouquets btw. There is usually a big write up about where the flower farmer is from. They come from sustainable farms all over the world. She is going to try to find out where this flower farmer was located.

I've never tried any Dianthus in a pot. I try not to pot anything that doesn't have to come inside because it's just that much more watering for me to do. I hope my new patch of D. gratianopolitanus does not fail in the heat but I've never had that one in AL before & have no idea what to expect. It will take a few yrs before I see what D. gratianopolitanus can & can't do where I am now. In any case, I'll welcome those scented blooms any time they feel like showing!

The other ones that I have (D. barbatus) have been blooming literally non-stop for over 2 yrs, through frozen temps up to the heat of summer.
