Rose Campion makes an attractive accent in any garden. This erect, wooly silver-gray plant produces a succession of long-stalked purple-red flowers from late spring through the summer and into the early autumn. This biennial reseeds itself reliably, and may survive as a short-lived perennial. Height 32 inches; spread 18 inches.
Sow seed in situ in spring, or start in containers in a coldframe. Grow in any good garden soil with reasonable drainage. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
