Sorry - we have had to temporarily suspend accepting new orders both online and by phone. We are experiencing unprecedented demand, and to maintain our high levels of customer service we need time to catch up processing existing orders. We are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to catch up and hope that our site and order line will be open again in the next few days.

Description
This stiff, upright perennial makes quite a show! Clusters of scarlet star-shaped flowers perch upon tall, stiff stems throughout midsummer, bringing height and vibrancy to the back of sunny borders. Lychnis chalcedonica enjoys a damp, boggy environment and makes a fine addition to bog gardens and the edge of ponds and streams. Commonly known as Maltese Cross, this hardy perennial also holds an RHS AGM. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Lychnis in a sunny or semi shaded position on fertile, well drained soil that remains reliably moist in summer. Also suitable for clay soils, damp or boggy areas and planting around the edges of ponds.
More Info
Deadhead faded Lychnis flowers regularly to prolong flowering and prevent unwanted seedlings. In autumn, cut back the old foliage and faded flower stems to just above ground level to make way for new growth in the spring.
