Lychnis Coronaria

First saw this biennial growing in a part shade flower bed of a cottage garden. The colour of the flat one inch flowers is best described in Garden to Vase
as shocking fuchsia. The author also recommends them as cut flowers. Something I intend to try next season.

Left to reseed they are easy to pull up or move. The Angel Blush variety is snow white with a hint of pink that slowly deepens to a rich rose with a white edge. I will be starting some inside in March. You can find seeds for Lychnis Coronaria Alba at the StokesSeeds site.

The old fashion look of this flower is ideal for a Keepsake box
