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
