Hardy annuals can be sown directly into their flowering positions in the spring and will tolerate a certain amount of cold. Well-known flowers such as sweet peas, poppies, stocks and sunflowers fall under this category, as do some of the more unusual flowers - gomphocarpus & ratibida for example.
Silene pendula 'Peach Blossom'
Campion, Nodding Catchfly
A charming, but exquisite stunner for the spring or summer garden. Its habit is branching so it reaches only 4-6in in height yet cascades or spreads for 12in Descriptively it's one mass of ½in double blooms, Uniquely the blooms have no consistent colour. The buds are deep pink opening to salmon and maturing to white, conveying this majestic blossom effect. Ideal for hanging baskets, containers and direct sown, or planted out, is a striking carpeting plant of better character and form than alyssum. Occasionally singles will appear in the double forms and should be removed.More info
