Silene Armeria 1000+ Seeds, Garden Catchfly Flowers, None So Pretty

The Plant Attraction


Silene Armeria
Also known as: Catchfly, none-so-pretty, sweet William Silene

Beautify your garden or patio with this one! Native to Europe, but has escaped gardens and naturalized over time in parts of eastern and central North America and the Pacific Northwest. It is typically grown in U.S. gardens as a cool weather self seeding annual or biennial and that is why we think most people consider it a perennial. Plants rise to 12-16” tall on upright stems clad with oval to lanceolate gray-green leaves (to 3” long). Rounded clusters of rose-pink to magenta-pink flowers (each to 1/2” across) bloom in mid to late summer. Each flower has 5 shallowly notched petals. The stems of this species are sticky and may snare small insects, hence the common name of catchfly.

Grow in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Plants prefer dryish sandy or gravelly soils but do not perform well in the really hot and humid summers.
USDA zone 5 to 8
