Rose Campion

Rose Campion

Rose campion, formally known as lychnis coronaria, is an easy-to- grow pink-magenta sweetheart plant with wooly gray leaves. Its name means "lamp"; in Greek because the ancient Greeks used its leaves as lamp wicks!

For best results, plant rose campion in a dry, sunny spot, and water sparingly and slowly. Sow seeds on the surface -- light helps them germinate.
