Silene acaulis

This is the campion family, with some tiny alpine cushion plants, and some larger herbaceous species. Most of the ones that we grow come from high in the mountains, but sizes are variable. They all have the characteristic five-petalled flowers, often with a distinctive and attractive striped and coloured calyx.

Silene acaulis makes loose cushions of slender, bright green leaves, with short stems carrying many pink flowers with divided petals. Known as the Moss Campion, it is native to high mountain rocks in the UK, and throughout Eurasia and N America.
