Dianthus superbus var. rupifragus / Iwanadeshiko イワナデシコ

 
Dianthus superbus var. rupifragus is a perennial inhabiting a dry, rocky area. It closely resembles another variety, that is, D. superbus var. longicalycinus. With the former, the stem to set flowers, not erecting, extends sideways, the leaves having a powdery tinge, the flower hairy inside, the petals a bit more deeply split. Another difference is that it has two pairs of bracts while the latter having 3 or 4 couples. By the name of I. Maruyama, the botanist considers this variety, rupifragus, a survivor of an old type in a uniquely dry, rocky area.
