Description :

An admirable variety of Ragged Robin with double flowers

Lychnis flos-cuculi (cuckoo flower in Latin) or Ragged Robin is a perennial common to wet meadows in the northern hemisphere from Europe to Siberia. It is sturdy, hardy and has free-flowering, tousled blooms that bring a touch of brightness to meadows and wild gardens.

Lychnis flos-cuculi 'Jenny', produced by British plantsmen Blooms of Bressingham, is a great variety with double flowers. It has a long flowering period in May-June, producing masses of fluffy, lavender-pink pompoms on sturdy floral stalks that can grow to 60 cm tall.

Its lovely pastel hue and flowers very like pinks make it a star plant for the front of a perennial bed to contrast with daisy-type flowers (Echinacea) or under generous foliage plants with cream or purple variegated leaves (Miscanthus sinensis 'Variegatus', Miscanthus 'Cosmopolitan', Cotinus coggygria).

For wild gardens, mixed borders.

Grow in the sun or slight shade in good garden soil, which is sufficiently moist in summer.

Maintenance: remove the dried inflorescences. Water if necessary in the summer to encourage a second flowering in early autumn.
