The first time I spotted a Deptford I was troubled by two things; how difficult it is to photograph due to its small size and what kind of name is Deptford?
Today I finally had time to research my puzzlement over the name. Apparently it was mistaken for another flower and was named after a place in London where it has never grown. Botanical names rarely, if ever, get corrected so it will remain Deptford Pink forevermore.
