Lychnis flos-cuculi ‘Petite Jenny’

Ragged Robin Campion

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.335.440

Dwarf form of the popular, double-flowered selection L. ‘Jenny’. The old-fashioned Ragged Robin is a late spring bloomer for a sunny area. Upright branching stems hold a long succession of double, soft lavender-pink flowers, early summer through autumn. A lovely pastel shade for the 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.
