Lychnis coronaria


Rose Campion

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.335.070


Always a garden favourite, this is a short-lived perennial that will usually self-seed for many years. Plants form a low mound of felted silvery-grey leaves, bearing upright stems in summer with loads of bright magenta-pink to red flowers. Attractive to butterflies. This is rather a garish colour, but fun in the garden for its shock value, especially when combined with orange or purple. Seedlings that form may be easily moved in spring or early fall. Foliage often needs to be tidied in early spring. Drought tolerant once established. Flowers are great for cutting.
