Lychnis coronaria 'Angel's Blush'

(Occulata)

Dusty Miller

An old garden favourite, this is a short-lived perennial that will  copiously self-seed. 

Plants form a low mound of soft, very stroke-able, silvery-grey leaves. 

In summer,  tall  stems appear covered in round white flowers that have a blush of Barbie pink in the centre. 

Sounds a bit garish but the effect is actually quite subtle. 

Easy to grow in poor, dry soil becoming  drought tolerant once established.

The foliage often needs to be tidied in early spring and seedlings that appear can be easily moved at the same time. 

Attractive to butterflies and the flowers are excellent for cutting.
