This is the dark purple form of the very rare British native which is both soundly perennial and beautiful. Growing between 30-45cm in height, it’s common name are few, such as Red Catchfly, Clammy Campion and Lychis Viscaria Atropurpurea. In midsummer, massed panicles of purple-red flowers are held atop strong thin stems, displayed during June and July on upright, almost bare, stems arising from a rosette of strappy green leaves at the base, and will make a charming feature dotted through a border, and may do well in an alpine garden as its natural habitat is on inaccessible rock faces. This unusual member of the Campion family is attractive to moths; indeed the garden name derives from the stickiness of the stems, which are indeed, sticky enough to trap the odd small fly (to no obvious advantage unless you know the reason why, which we don't!). So you may not want to plant it too close to paths and walkways!
