Lychnis

Here is a strange plant. Strange in that it comes up in one place, grows for awhile, dies, comes up in another place but never goes crazy. Lychnis coronaria is native to Asia and Europe. It has felty gray leaves and comes in shades of pink and white. Thank goodness I got the magenta one because white flowers and gray foliage just does not do it for me! I love the contrast of the bright colored flowers and the gray foliage. A friend gave me the plant about 5 or 6 years ago. It has moved all over my front garden. The leaves grow about 8" tall. Add the flowers and the whole thing becomes 2' tall.

Let's see where it comes up next?
Happy Gardening!
