Silene dioica ‘Valley High’

Variegated Red Catchfly

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.492.250

An interesting edging or rock garden perennial, this produces a low mound of olive-green leaves with streaky creamy-yellow to white margins. Clusters of small magenta-pink flowers are a pleasing accent in late spring. Also suitable for mixed containers or along pathways. The slightly sticky flower stems have led to the common name Catchfly. May stay evergreen in mild winter regions. Clip plants lightly after blooming to remove the spent flower stems. USPP#16064: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
