Hi guys

I got this as a gift from someone. They look nice in my balcony garden I'd like to order more seeds and germinate in my empty pots but I don't know the ID could someone help? These bloom in mild cold weather (15-25°C) I guess since it's beginning of winter in North India and they're flowering already

Thanks in advance and please let me know if I posted in the wrong sub forum :)

Here is an example of Dianthus chinensis. This is a huge genus, and includes Pinks, Carnations, and Sweet Williams. Some of those only have very narrow silver leaves, but others are more like this example. Sweet Williams also have broader leaves ....

I didn't think of sweet Williams and I didn't know that carnations were the same genus. (y)

Try letting them go to seed and collect the seeds. I know the brown seed pods are not too pretty, but it's probably the easiest way to do it. There are so many varieties and colors it's unlikely you would find the same ones. You could asks whoever gave them to you where they got them and start there. I'm sure they would tell you, especially as you liked their gift so much you want to find more.
