Lychnis coronaria ‘Oculata’ /  Angel's Blush Rose Campion / Seeds

A great border plant, with silvery leaves and lovely star-shaped flowers.  This is a white flowered variety of Rose Campion, each flower having a decorative red eye.  These plants are good for late season flowering from July to September.  They grow to a height of 70cm.

Lychnis plants prefer full sun or part shade and well-drained soil. They tolerate dry sandy soils and coastal sites.

These are short lived perennials that re-seed freely once established. 

Pack of approx 50 seeds.  Sow in summer to early autumn.  Plants flower in the season after sowing.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
