Red campion, Silene dioica, is a pretty, low-maintenence wildflower, bearing delicate pink flowers on tall, rich green stems. Eventually forming bold clumps, Silene dioica is often found growing wild in woodlands and roadside verges. It's easy to grow and tolerant of most soils, but can struggle in acidic conditions.

Silene dioica makes a good addition to a rockery or partially shaded corner, and is a great addition to a moist wildflower meadow. For best results grow in sun to partial shade in moist but well-drained soil. Cut back stems after flowering to encourage a second flush.

Our packaging is made from FSC recycled cardboard and environmentally friendly inks. The seed bags are waxed paper or compostable starch to keep seeds in the best condition during storage. Seed packs are supplied ready-mixed with organic husks for ease of distribution.
