Description

Lychnis coronaria has fuchsia-pink, 1" flowers borne on long fuzzy stems over woolly, silvery basal foliage. This long-blooming perennial may be short-lived, but readily self sows to prolong its presence in your garden. Also known as Rose Campion, Lychnis coronaria's attractive basal foliage is evergreen. Planted en masse, Rose Campion is a real show-stopper when in bloom!

Lychnis coronaria prefers sun and sharply drained soil. It is drought tolerant once established. Also known as Silene coronaria.

Care and Growing Tips

We enjoy the seedlings this plant produces, but if you don't want it to self-sow, deadhead after it's finished blooming. Sand or gravel can be mixed into the planting site to improve drainage if necessary. Avoid wet feet at all costs.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
