Also know as Plank’s Campion or Plank’s catchfly.
With fine foliage and stems this is a rare addition for the keen alpine gardener. With red flowers in mid summer this is ideal for a sheltered sunny position with free draining soil. We have only tested this plant down to -5c so can not advise if it will tolerate our winters beyond this.
