While recently editing my catalog of Lightroom images, I ran upon this late spring wildflower that I have not highlighted. The flower … Deptford Pink (Dianthus armeria). This beauty was found in the Prairie Meadow I have been featuring the past couple of months. I found this petite wildflower in early June, while walking the perimeter of the meadow. The Deptford Pink is an annual that grows to 20-inches tall. There are 5 small, pink, fringed flower petals, with white dots:
There is one small area of the meadow where I found this wildflower growing, and only a few plants. I’m hoping that it will reseed and grow into a nice large cluster, adding a magnificent pool of pinks to the meadow.
