Description :

Moss Campion or Cushion Pink 'Frances'

Native to the grassy uplands of mountains in Europe and North America, Silene acaulis is an evergreen, mat-forming perennial. It grows as a dense, moss-like cushion which becomes a carpet of flowers in spring.

This is a pioneering plant that will adventure into a crack between two stones or head out across a scree slope or an alpine rockery.

The variety we offer, Silene acaulis 'Frances', has foliage with golden highlights and light pink flowers.

In the garden we like to plant it in the sun (not too hot) or partial shade in moist, humus-rich soil.

In the alpine greenhouse we plant in a mixture of equal parts clay soil, compost and rough 5 mm sand.

For troughs, alpine rockery, alpine greenhouse.
