This is absolutely my kind of Silene! er, Lychnis, er. Melandrium... (hmm, that name is familiar, was it on a seedlist I saw this year?...)

I also have nigrescens this year but I don't think there are any real seeds...just a couple of flecks of chaff!  :'(

I'll set some real seeds aside for you this summer, Todd... assuming I don't kill the plant or anything in the meantime.  

Ooops, I see I made a promise I did not fulfill (sorry!)... that plant was one of the many that didn't bloom last year in that unusually cold, rainy summer.

I think I have seed of nigrescens from one of the Czech lists I didn't get sown last year :( hope its still good..
and not making any progress on getting seed sown this year.. maybe if I ever had a break from shovelling snow and cutting firewood...--well it should warm up by June, anyway....
