Dianthus superbus var. longicalycinus: Japanese Carnation

The plants aren't anything to write home about but the flowers are remarkable. This plant has been seeding about in the Asian Collections at least since the early 1990s. Right now a goodly number of them are flowering in the bed with the Stone Lantern. Balloonflowers, Platycodon, are flowering heavily with them.
