Silene orientalis blooms in early summer with clusters of hot pink flowers on top of narrow stems. It's a rare plant, but easy to grow.
The tall, bright pink flowers of Silene orientalis look stunning with blue flowers. It's shown here blooming with Nigella damascena in front of a hardy hibiscus, which will bloom later in the season.
Silene orientalis is a biennial or short-lived perennial that self sows where it is happy. Mine has spread itself around the garden, where it looks great with the other June-blooming perennials and annuals. Hardy in zones 4-8.
