Dianthus / Nelken

My biologist and I have not been able to find a common English name for this little beauty from outer space. Below is another dianthus. I wasn’t able to determine the exact species, there are just too many of them. Don’t let the pictures fool you, the blossoms are different in size. The blossom below is just the size of a coin, the top one is quite a bit bigger. None of those hairs are visible without a magnifying glass.


Na, wer hätte das jetzt für eine Nelke gehalten? Die obere Blüte, eine Prachtnelke,  ist tatsächlich viel größer als die untere. Ohne Lupe sieht man keine Härchen.
