This robust specimen has nearly taken over a small perennial bed sown with a wildflower mix 2 years ago. It looks familiar, but ...

And there are some poppy leaves mixed in.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Yep, that's what I was going to say as well -- I have a bunch, too (and it also came in a wildflower mix). It's beautiful when it blooms and I'm glad to have it -- great for pollinators!

Dianthus barbatus, sweet William. It's a biennial, so it makes a rosette of leaves the first year, and then blooms, sets seed and dies the second year.
