Silene x robotii 'Rollys Favourite' (Large Plant)

Campion, Catchfly

Hardy Perennial

Silene 'Rolly's Favourite' is a unique hybrid crossed with Lychnis. This unusual variety will produce bubblegum pink blooms on loosely sprawling plants from spring to autumn, making it perfect for the patio or to soften the edges of borders. Campion plants thrive in full sun or dappled shade, and are bushy, with almost more flowers than foliage! Silene are a group of fuss-free, hardy perennials, which are often overlooked when it comes to being planted into the garden. These underused plants are well worth growing for their flowering performance, and carefree attitude. Height and spread: 40cm (16").

Water silene plants regularly until they are fully established. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring. Silene self-seeds freely. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead stems of silene flowers as the blooms fade.
