Lychnis coronaria Gardener’s World

Rose Campion

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.335.140

(='Blych') An absolutely stunning selection of the Rose Campion, discovered in England. It forms a low rosette of fuzzy silver leaves. Taller stems hold fluffy double flowers for most of the summer in a rich deep blood-red shade. Excellent for cutting. Requires good drainage. Clumps should be divided every other spring. Requires good drainage. Fairly drought tolerant once established. Wonderfully garish when in flower, so daring gardeners may want to use this towards the border edge or in containers. Also suitable for growing in gravel gardens or screes. From Blooms of Bressingham®. Registered with COPF, royalty required for propagation.
