What is the name of this plant?
What is the name of this plant? These photos were taken in my neighbor's yard and she gave me a bunch, too. She calls them "Pinks". However, these don't really look like anything in the Dianthus family so I'm not sure what they are called.
They have small, pinkish-red flowers with thin, grassy leaves. It is the very first plant to come up and bloom every year. They form large green seed pods and it is easy to harvest the seeds when the pods turn light tan. The seeds are hard, round and reddish-brown. These plants also readily reseed themselves. Does anyone know the name? Are they invasive? What is your experience?
Thanks for the help!
