Dianthus superbus var. longicalycinus / Kawaranadeshiko カワラナデシコ

 
Dianthus superbus var. longicalycinus, a perennial, inhabits a sunny river beach or grassland, forming tufts. The stem stands 30-80cm tall, branching at an upper part and sparsely setting some light reddish-purple 4cm in diameter flowers on a shoot apex in July-October. The petals divide torn like threads, which characterizes this species. Additionally, the bract number in this variety counts 3-4 pairs, which gives a point to differentiate it from D. superbus var. rupifragus.
