Floral Friday: June 29

This week's botanical shoutout goes to rose campion (Lychnis coronaria), which is blooming all over my front garden. This (short-lived) perennial plant reseeds itself freely, which is fine with me because it provides a pop of color while the rest of the garden is fairly green and in between bloom stages.

This plant is fairly carefree — I actually forgot it was growing in such abundance until it bloomed. The plants reach about two feet high when flowering, otherwise they stay fairly short with gray-green foliage. While I grow the magenta variety, there is also a pure white variety and one that is white with pink center.
