Silene uniflora ‘Druett’s Variegated’

Variegated Rock Campion

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.492.200

Also known as Catchfly. This is an interesting selection from England, forming a low cushion of fleshy green leaves, smartly edged in creamy-white. Curiously ballooned white flowers appear in early summer. An excellent addition to the sunny rock garden, rock wall or alpine trough, planted where it can drape and cascade, and adding some colour interest well into late summer and fall. Combines beautifully with any of the lower alpine types of hardy Geranium or as a contrast to bolder leaved plants like Bergenia. Remove any all-green shoots that might appear or they will take over the clump after a few seasons.
