Long-time denizen of cottage gardens, rose campion (Lychnis coronaria
) is loved for its silvery white felted foliage and brilliant magenta flowers in early to mid summer. Self-sows nicely, which is just as well since this is a rather short-lived perennial. Our natural wild-sourced seed may show some white and pale pink variants.
Sow the seed in well-drained soil in full sun from spring through early fall.
I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central
. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
