Roadsides, disturbed places, often near old homesites. The calyx and bracts are glabrous to minutely puberulent. First collected in 1882 in Ingham Co. Dianthus chinensis L., Rainbow Pink, would run near here in the key; it has a glabrous calyx subtended by more than 2 bracts, the basal leaves wither by flowering time, and the cauline leaves are broad. It was collected in Kent Co. in 1896, but it is unclear if it was an escape or a cultivated plant.
