Deptford Pink

Dianthus armeria

This tough little flower grows in a variety of drier spots. It can be found in dry fields and along roadsides. It has even been seen growing in a mowed lawn, where its normally foot or so of height is reduced to a few inches, and still blooming. Its cheerful, white-speckled blossoms open each morning as the sun hits them, then close again in the evening.
