~ Silene regia, Royal Catchfly

~Sold out for 2023~

Silene regia

Royal Catchfly

  • Full sun to dappled shade
  • Average to slightly dry soils
  • 48” tall
  • Summer blooming
  • Native to the mid west, their historical range does not extend into Ontario.

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery https://www.prairiemoon.com/silene-regia-royal-catchfly-prairie-moon-nursery.html 

The intensely orangish-red flowers, which are known to attract hummingbirds, and easy adaptation to garden settings are the reasons that I’m growing this species, even though they aren’t historically native to this province.  

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
