Pink Wildflower

Posted on Jul 6, 2015

This is a very tiny and so very vibrant pink wildflower! I am not a botanist and did not know the species was, but I believe it to be Deptford Pink or Grass Pink (Dianthus armeria). The wildflower is native to Europe, and though nonnative in our soil it does well without becoming invasive or dominating any landscape. I feel like we should simply enjoy this summer splash of color!
