Dianthus barbatus Tuxedo Black


This plant is in full bloom and I have to say I am impressed by the deep red/black color of the flowers. These were started from seed last year. I will have to try and collect more seed. I wonder if one pinches it during early spring if it will branch more and produce even more flowers. Something to consider doing next year.
Here is the description:
