Deptford Pink, a non-native, has been added to the USWildflowers database (02/12/2011.) Scientific name is Dianthus armeria. It is listed as an invasive species by some authorities. It’s also known by the common name Mountain Pink, although that common name (as happens often with common names) also applies to another species (Centaurium beyrichii.)
