Sweet William

From a distance this resembles Dame’s Rocket and Phlox, but the toothed edges of the petals give it away. This name first recorded in a 1596 garden catalog! (They must mean a different sort of catalog.) Edible flowers. Native to southern Europe and parts of Asia.

Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus)
