Silene asterias
"Cherry Drumsticks"

Silene asterias "Cherry Drumsticks" Silene asterias "Cherry Drumsticks"

I am so impressed that this hardy and unusual Bulgarian Catchfly performs so well in our temperate climate. My favorite kind of faithful perennial- increasing in width and bloom each year! Strong upright “drumsticks” begin flowering in late Spring  revealing  truly fascinating spherical clusters 2 ½” across  made up of  small rich carmine blooms held in dark wine bracts sporting bright blue anthers - very striking! Pretty even when not in bloom with its rosette of  fresh looking  spring green oblong leaves. Wonderful cut flowers! Deciduous. To 18” x 15”.
