Silene regia

Silene regia
One of the Fire Pinks - so called because of their habit of appearing quickly after fires in the woods of eastern USA.
Silene regia
The flowers are plentiful, of good size and intense scarlet, and produced on slender plants of about 2ft tall. They actually thrive best in dry shade, or at least, they like semi shade, and do not appreciate badly drained soils.
1L pots ~ £6
