Productive and Beautiful
Sweet William is one of my favorite old-fashioned garden flowers and I have been so pleased with how profusely my second year plants are blooming. So many lovely colors, red, white, a wide range of pinks, and bi-colored. They started blooming in late May here, and are still sending up new stalks of buds. They also seem to transplant reasonably well. Hopefully some will reseed for next year.
