I confess a deep love of Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus). Very gauche of me, I am sure. Actually, I have a huge tender spot for cottage flowers in general. That they're biennials or tender perennials ups my regard for them. I am not sure why this latter category sways me so; maybe it's their fleeting nature (foxglove, hollyhock, and some delphiniums are also in this category, and I love them, too).
