Silene plankii

Submitted by Kelaidis on

A rather obscure and rare little Silene from New Mexico: this started blooming for me this week. Now if it would only open a lot of flowers at once!

It is a good thing in an alpine plant to bloom in late July! Especially with such bright red color (and cute anthers)...

I grew it 3 years ago from Alplains seed and its overwintered for me here in Massachusetts. A nice plant that blooms at a time we need color. I wasn't sure about it when I bought the seed but I'd buy more seed, given it's features.
