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. The former stems from setting flowers, not erecting, extending sideways, with leaves having a powdery tinge, and flowers are hairy inside, their petals a bit more deeply split. Another difference is that it has two pairs of bracts; in contrast, the latter has 3 or 4 couples. Iwao Maruyama considers this variety, rupifragus, to be a survivor of an old type in a uniquely dry, rocky area. Bloom time: May-June.
