    Theophrastus named Dianthus in the 4th century B.C., meaning “Jove’s flower.”  The common name “pink” is from “pinct” referring to the jagged edge of the petals. Deltoides refers to the inverted V-shaped pocket at the base of the petals.  In 1629 John Parkinson described the Dianthus:”There remain divers sorts of wild or small Gilloflowers (which wee usually call Pinkes) to be entreated of, some bearing single, and some double flowers, some smooth, almost without any deepe dents on the edges, and some ragged, or as it were feathered.  Some growing upright like unto Gilloflowers, others creeping… some of one colour, some of another, and many of divers colours.”  D. deltoides 1st identified in 1671 by Pinax.
