Lychnis coronaria Seeds

Lychnis is one of our most beautiful and popular garden plants. This lovely perennial plant produces tall silvery stems topped by deep pink flowers. As you can see from these photos, blooms are wide open and are easy for Bees and Butterflies to land on. In fact they are great for lots of pollinating insects and recommended by the RHS too.


Lovely for cottage gardens, wildlife gardens and also more formal herbaceous borders. Lychnis flowers from June until August. They grow beautifully with all sorts of summer flowering perennials including Geranium and Verbascum.

Each individual flower is upward facing which makes it jolly useful and attractive in the garden. Grow in full sun with well drained soil for best results.
