Product Details

Product Details

Dense tufts of woolly gray leaves give rise to 24–36″ flower stems covered in vibrant, 1″ magenta blooms. This intense shade complements the silvery gray foliage perfectly and does marvelous things for purple-leaved companions, from annuals to shrubs.

A member of the Pink family that's closely related to Silene, this genus comprises some 20 species of annual and perennial herbs found in diverse habitats throughout the North Temperate Zone. Grow in full sun and well-drained soil.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Pronunciation: lik'-nis

A member of the Pink family that's closely related to Silene, this genus comprises some 20 species of annual and perennial herbs found in diverse habitats throughout the North Temperate Zone. Prompt deadheading prolongs life, but let some stems set seed for future generations.

Light: Grow in full sun (or partial shade in the South).

Soil: Performs well in average, well-drained garden soil.

Watering and fertilizing: S. dioica prefers moist, well-drained soil. Other species require less water or are drought tolerant once established. Side-dress with compost or aged manure each year in the spring.

Pests/Diseases: Rarely problems.

Companions: A traditional favorite among Roses or in cottage gardens, Lychnis also combines well with Nepeta, Perovskia, Salvia, or Heuchera.
