Dianthus is a genus of around 300 species of flowering plants in the family Caryophyllaceae, native mainly to Europe and Asia. The name derives from the Greek words for "heaven" (διός dios) and "flower" (ἀνθός anthos). Common names include carnation (D. caryophyllus), pink (D. plumarius and related species) and sweet william (D. barbatus).
The leaves are opposite, simple, mostly linear, and often heavily rolled under at the edges. The flowers have five petals, typically with a frilled or serrated edge, and are pale to dark pink. Flowering occurs mostly in spring and summer, although some species (such as D. caryophyllus) flower more evenly throughout the year.
The fruit is a capsule containing numerous small seeds. The genus is distributed throughout the temperate regions of the world, with the greatest number of species in Asia. Dianthus species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including the Cabbage Moth, Grapevine Moth, Large Yellow Underwing, Small Angle Shades, and Turnip Moth.
