Ly­ch­nis chal­cedonica

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

Per­haps the least long-flow­er­ing of this bunch, but it still pro­vides sparkles for six weeks or so. This is a plant that loves air and sun­shine, and it rarely lives long, so leaves none of those ghostly stalks to self seed. Here, it has suc­cumbed to the spread­ing af­fec­tions of Gera­nium ‘Ann Folkard’, an un­usual trail­ing gera­nium with gold-tinged leaves. Like many of the mod­ern hy­brids, it per­forms all sum­mer. (Marsh­wood Gar­dens)
