Lychnis - campion
Lychnis, also known as Campion, is a special sight in the garden that is both hardy and has beautiful fresh green leaves. Once sown, you can enjoy this cheerful sun lover every year with its summer flowering and long florescence where you can enjoy the magnificent red flowers up to September. Lychnis is also a good choice if you want to attract butterflies to your garden thanks to its boldness.
Lychnis seeds and daring flower combinations
The Lychnis is a perennial and the sowing spot in the flower border has to be selected with care because the red flowers are particularly striking. They act well as an accent colour surrounded by plants with fresh green foliage, the Boxwood plant for example, or together with other brightly coloured flowers. How about combining the Lychnis with a mixture of wild flowers or deep purple cornflowers? A particularly daring choice is combining Lychnis with orange-coloured Indian Cress.<
