Rose campion (Silene coronaria, formerly Lychnis coronaria), also known as mullein pink, starts out as basal rosettes of silver-hairy foliage the first year, then sends up 2- to 3-foot-tall, branching stems topped with single, magenta flowers in early summer starting in the second year. This old-fashioned favorite is a classic for cottage-style gardens.
Full sun. Though the plants usually behave as short-lived perennials, they tend to self-sow if you allow the seeds to form, so you can have have them around for years from just one sowing. Zone 3 to 9.
Collected in mid- to late July 2020. At least 20 seeds.
