  2. SILENE LATIFOLIA

    Long stems hold dividing sprays of pure white flowers. For such a pretty plant it also has some rather morbid common names such as the "Grave Flower" or "Flower of the Dead" in parts of England, as they are seen often growing on grave sites and around tombstones. ... Learn More

  4. SILENE MARITIMA

    The 'Sea Campion' is an ideal flower for a rockery, bank or wall, where it will display its disproportionately large, white frilly flowers, nestling on cushions of grey leaves for a long period in spring and early summer, the single, comparatively large, white flowers giving a star-studded appearance to this low-growing perennial. The tiny grey-green leaves form a dense clump that will die back in the winter months and re-appear in the spring. This hardy little treasure is native to the UK where it is to be found in coastal areas, appearing on cliffs, rocky outcrops and even sand dunes. ... Learn More

  5. SILENE MEXICANA

    Clusters of intense (some say "screaming"!) pink star-shaped flowers, shown above dense glossy green foliage, maintain a good display if faded flowers are removed regularly, and it is particularly good for cutting if you like to display flowers indoors. A really cheerful addition to your garden, either in borders or containers, it will be happiest in a sunny position from where it is likely to seed itself around. ... Learn More

    A quite spectacular new plant we have never seen before with thick, blue-grey foliage resembling that of a carnation.

  7. SILENE NUTANS 'CONFETTI'

    Numerous strong stems bearing thick green leaves, produce sprays of numerous, long, pinkish-purple buds which open into spikes of creamy white flowers in mid summer.

  9. SILENE 'RAY'S GOLDEN CAMPION'

    Bright pink flowers open over a very long period, on contrasting dark stems, above compact clumps of shining, bright, lemon-gold foliage. After years of trying we have succeeded in breeding this absolutely new and stunning, easy-to-grow dianthus relative that comes almost completely true from seed. This lovely variant on a British native flower is dioicus, meaning both male and female plants will occur, the male plants flowering for a very long time all summer long, as they just make pollen and do not set seeds, whereas the female plants produce inflated seed pods full of seeds, so allow them to naturalise, especially into gravel, for a stunning display. A small percentage of the subsequent seedlings may be green too, so simply remove them whilst they are small. ... Learn More

This delightful and rarely seen or offered gem is naturally at home on rock faces or mountain scree slopes, where it is exceptionally well suited to a rock or alpine garden setting. ... Learn More

  11. SILENE SCHAFTA

    A long-lived dwarf forming a neat tuft of bright green pointed leaves, covered in late summer and into autumn with bright magenta flowers with deeply cut petals. This is one of the most popular plants for a rockery, not least because it flowers at a time when many other rockery plants are past their best. ... Learn More

  12. SILENE SUECICA

    From low clumps of thin, shiny, deep green leaves, arise erect, unbranched stems, on which compact bunches of deep pink flowers open. An uncommon and very lovely alpine plant, that in the wild lives on the cold exposed mountains of Norway and Sweden, but it is sometimes found near the coasts, and is also found in the Alps and the Pyrenees, Greenland and North America. ...

  13. SILENE VIRIDIFLORA

  14. SILENE VISCARIA

    Bright rosy-pink flowers appear in compact whorled spikes from May to August on this easy-to-grow perennial.
