Lychnis flos-cuculi Jenny

Ragged Robin Campion

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.335.400

(='Lychjen') An interesting double-flowered selection of the old-fashioned Ragged Robin, this is a late spring bloomer for a sunny area. Upright branching stems hold a long succession of shaggy soft lavender-pink blooms. A lovely pastel shade for the middle to front of the border. A nice filler flower for cut arrangements. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. Beautiful with blue or purple Iris or other large, blousy companions such as Peonies. Shear back to 6 inches after blooming. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#14139: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
