Petrorhagia nanteuilii is a species of flowering plant in the carnation family, Caryophyllaceae.[1] Common names include childing pink,[2] productive carnation, proliferous pink and wild carnation[3] It is an annual that grows to 50 cm tall. Leaves are linear, opposite and stem clasping. Small pink flowers are produced in small ovoid heads, with usually only one flower visible at a time. These are followed by ovoid seed capsules.[4]

The species is native to Europe but has become naturalised elsewhere.[3]
