Silene Dioica 'Purple Prince'
We have finally succeeded in producing a purple-leafed, fertile 'Red Campion' (Silene dioica). The leaves of this superb new Plant World discovery start off green when young and most go darker the brighter the sun is, giving a perfect foil for the bright pink flowers. A small percentage will stay green and can be discarded.
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.
