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. A new and rare species of the campion family, almost certainly not in cultivation and close to S. scouleri and also S.nutans, and impressive grown "en masse".
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
