Don't remember what these are called.

#1 Just found it: Sweet William (Dianthus Barbatus) Caryophyllaceae Family

#2 It smells like garlic. Just found it, I hope : Society Garlic (tulbaghia violacea) Alliaceae Family

#3 Is it Verbena?
#4 I checked under Ice Plant but didn't see anything similar.
#5 1 black seed grows in the middle of the flower.

PS. Pictures uploaded so fast @ this hour!
Edit: I wanted to remove pictures of plants I found but the "remove" link is not showing. : ( sorry.

At least it is listed under the same order as the Ice plant.

Thank you very much Flowerpower! It is the Portulaca, Portulaca Grandiflora.

Edit: I wonder if this is the Portulaca called "Moss Rose" (looks like it)?

[quote=RonsGarden]#2 If it smells like garlic then it is in the Allium family. More then likely Allium orophilum var. ostroskianum


Sorry RonsGarden but I'm confused about this one too. The flower of a society garlic looks more like my flower & society garlic smells like garlic too. Any other way I can tell the difference?

You're correct! The Portulaca is also called Moss Rose. I have 6 in my flowerbed right now. They will self-seed, are very drought tolerate (here in zone 8a) and to me, are so very pretty when in full bloom.

Well, this is pretty funny. I got interested in Dianthus 'Sooty' for my chocolate garden and put Sweet William in the search and it took me here. I almost bought some like yours last summer but I didn't know anything about it. I think it forms a clump, right, Rashy?

I always thought Dianthus was commonly called "pinks" and was low-growing. Seems this is a taller variety. 'Sooty' is gorgeous--deep maroon flowers.

Well how low are you talking about? lol I think I owe you the measurements of my tulips too? Okay don't kill me.

Mine is about I think a foot. I'll measure tomorrow, they are so pretty now. I wanted to take a picture today but I didn't. I'll see if I can do it tomorrow. Pretty dark out now. Mine is planted near the iris and the oxalis. Soooooooo pretty!

The big old net is directing people to GG? COOL!
