this is a wonderful, constant bloomer in my central florida garden. i believe the proper name is Dianthus barbatus integerrima 'Bouquet Purple', not 'Purple Bouquet'. it is readily available here at lowe's and even my local ace hardware. it is pest free and well-behaved. it even blooms through a frost.

Prefers full sun, but is tolerant of most soil conditions and has no picky moisture requirements.
