Lychnis coronaria 'Alba'

Dusty Miller

An easy to grow, very undemanding plant that is mostly biennial but might prove a short lived perennial in the right location. This is nothing to worry about as it self seeds freely. 

We planted a couple of these 10 years ago and offspring of these plants still pop up. 

This is a pure white selection of the well known Rose Campion and is a very tough plant suitable for problem areas especially dry poor soils in sun or partial shade. 

It produces the best silvery leaf colour in drought prone soil. 

A lovely filler plant for the border and was incorporated into loads of show gardens at Chelsea recently.
