Description How to Grow Delivery

The deserved winner of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, Lychnis coronaria 'Alba' is a must for every sunny, well-drained border. The silver-grey felted leaves provide year-round interest and beautifully offset the masses of pure white flowers, which are held aloft on airy silver stems throughout summer. Trouble-free and easy to grow, rose campion puts on a stunning display from June right through to early autumn, with blooming prolonged by regular deadheading. Bees are attracted to the nectar- and pollen-rich flowers, which are superb in combination with salvias, Eryngium and Oenothera. If allowed, this fabulous short-lived perennial will self-seed to establish beautiful self-sustaining drifts. Height: 80cm (31in). Spread: 45cm (18in).

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
