Lychnis Viscaria Schnee
This is the scarce pure white version of the very rare British native, which is both soundly perennial and beautiful. In midsummer, massed panicles of ivory-white flowers are held atop strong thin stems, which are, indeed, sticky enough to trap the odd small fly (to no obvious advantage unless you know the reason why, which we don't!).
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.
