Rose Campion

Felted silver-gray foliage and stems and a twiggy open form make this plant work well both in the garden or at garden's edge as a see-through plant. Flowers are most often a vibrant magenta, but white and blush-pink selections are also available. Plants are deer resistant and drought tolerant once established. The silver leaves allow this plant to work in nearly any color scheme, despite its strong flower color. Good cut flower. Allow to reseed for longevity in the garden.
