Deptford pinks

Deptford pink is a tiny carnation-like flower – you can find them in fields and the bright edges of the woods:


The intense color is what draws me to them – and I’m fond of tiny flowers.

  1. What a beautiful and dainty flower. I’m always surprised at all the flowers we can find in the woods. 🙂

  2. Really splendid. I’ve never been lucky enough to see one in person, thank you for the introduction. It’s always amazing to see the minute detail on petals, the complex designs.

    • Thanks! I just looked it up, Deptford pink is all over the US, except for AZ and ND, so you be able to find them. I’d look in fields and the edges of woods. The plant is tall (1 to 2ft) and slender, it can grow in groups.
