Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Lychnis chalcedonica is a stiff and upright perennial and a real show stopper! Commonly known as Maltese Cross, the clusters of scarlet star-shaped flowers top tall, upright stems during midsummer, bringing height and interest to the back of a sunny border. Lychnis chalcedonica thrives in a damp, boggy environment and makes a great addition to a bog garden or the edge of a pond or stream. This hardy perennial also holds an RHS AGM. Height: 120cm (48”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Flowering Months
Feed and water Lychnis regularly until they are fully established. Support their tall stems with bamboo canes or twiggy sticks as the flower spikes develop. Lychnis chalcedonica will self seed freely. Deadhead faded Lychnis flowers to prolong flowering and prevent unwanted seedlings. In autumn, cut back the old foliage and faded flower stems, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.
Grow Lychnis in a sunny or semi shaded position on fertile, well drained soil that remains reliably moist in summer.
