Aren’t these gorgeous? On this Sweet Saturday, I’d like to introduce to you Sweet Willliam if you don’t know “him” already.
Sweet William (aka “Dianthus Barbatus”) is a perennial, sweet-smelling flower that is usually planted as an annual. I remember buying these as Dianthus, where I included them in one of my flower beds way back when. They do enjoy some shade so if you live in a particularly hot and sunny climate—like I do in the southwest—plant these babies in areas where there is at least partial shade for a good portion of the day and keep them well watered.
I just thought I’d share this sweet flower with you seeing as it is Sweet Saturday!
