You'll likely all recognize this old-fashioned rose campion except when it comes to the flowers. Vigorous clumps of silvery, woolly foliage and sturdy stems hold aloft bright magenta-red, fully double blooms. The flowers are large at one and a half inches across and resemble carnations or roses. The flowers are sterile so they don't reseed. Well-drained soil in full sun.
