Rose Campion

An old-fashioned cottage favourite. Rose Campion has bright pink flowers, silvery stems and beautiful soft pale green-grey leaves.

A hardy (but short-lived) perennial it will produce leaves and a sparse amount of flowers in its first year but numerous flowers in its second year. Rose Campion needs a period of cold to stimulate germination so I find putting them into the fridge for 2 weeks before sowing helps with this.

Seed Quantity 200 Seeds

Type Perennial

Genus Lychnis coronaria

Sow Seeds Put the seeds in the fridge for 2 weeks before sowing.  Sow under cover February-May or September-November or direct from April-July. Seeds will germinate in around 2 weeks.  Barely cover the seeds as light is needed for germination. Keep at 18-20℃.  Pot on and move to cooler but not cold conditions.

Plant Out  May-June 

Flowers Flowers will be sparse in the first year but numerous after.

Height & Spread 75cm high x 45cm spread

    Rose campion doing beautifully well

    Seeds sown directly outdoors last summer, all germinated and formed lovely silvery rosettes, and half have now also thrown up flower stalks and are producing stunning vivid pink flowers. I’m hopeful that the other half may do the same next summer. Great seeds, well packaged, excellent instructions - many thanks!
