Lychnis coronaria is a short-lived, self-sowing perennial with vivid, purplish-red flowers and fuzzy, silver-green leaves. Both the flowers and foliage are very striking. The foliage is great for brightening up a partly shaded garden.

Rose Campion is an heirloom flower that was traditionally planted with old-fashioned roses that bloomed in cool tones. In my garden, it looks lovely with Nigella hispanica 'Curiosity' and Calendula 'Zeolights'.

Also see Lychnis coronaria 'Alba' and Lychnis coronaria 'Angel's Blush'.

Rose campion starts blooming in June and continues for most of the summer. It self-sows nicely. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 3-9.
