Product Details
Silene latifolia Seeds

White Campion is one of our most beautiful and easily recognised wildflowers. This lovely perennial plant produces tall stems with pure white flowers each with 5 petals. White Campion is lovely with other wildflowers such as Bluebells as their flowering season coincide. They love sun and dappled shade. They are great for lots of pollinating insects including bees, hoverflies, butterflies and moths and listed by the RHS as Perfect for Pollinators.

Silene is perfect for cottage gardens in mixed borders with dappled shade and for wilder parts of manicured gardens such as an orchard or hedge bottom. White Campion flowers from April until July. They are also suited to naturalistic planting schemes, woodland and wild flower meadows because they grow beautifully with grasses, ox-eye daisies, geranium and other wildflowers.

White Campion is lovely both in the garden or as a cut flower in a wild posy. Grow in dappled shade with well drained fertile soil for best results. Will also grow in deep shade and open sunny meadows.
