Buy Silene dioica red campion: An attractive wildflower, found around woodland edges and in hedgerow.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average

    A dainty native wildflower with rose-pink flowers on upright stems in May and June. Red campion is perfect for naturalising in partially shady areas of a moist wildflower meadow or woodland edge. Commonly found growing in woods and hedgerows, in former times the pounded seed of the plant was used to treat snake bite.

  • Garden care: When sowing seeds do not use a fertiliser since wildflowers prefer poor soils. Dead-head regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn cut the faded flower-heads down to the ground and compost the dead stems.

  • Sow: March - October

  • Flowering: April - July

  • Approximate quantity: 100 seeds.
