SWEET WILLIAM A good candidate for a naturalistic garden because its nectar attracts birds, bees, and butterflies. Its flowers are considered edible. The plant is self-seeding. It grows to 30–75 cm tall. Widely used in borders, rock gardens and informal country cottage style gardens

Dianthus 'Heart Attack' - starts flowering in early spring and continues for months with brilliant red-black, carnation-like hummingbird acclaimed flowers atop glossy, dark green, strap-like foliage. Unlike other biennial Dianthus barbatus, this one keeps returning and getting better each year. (I have this one! The flowers are even darker than pictured here - nearing a maroon-chocolate tone.)
