When I google "wild sweet william" I get hits and images on both dianthus and phlox. Can someone tell me what this plant is that grows in my meadow?

TIA

The flower in your pic is a Dianthus...probably Dianthus barbatus, Sweet William

You are very welcome. They smell wonderful and are great little "work horses" in the garden.
