This attractive, semi-evergreen plant, forms an attractive clump of hairy, ovate leaves and bears sprays of deep pink flowers with five-notched petals and a delicate white eye. Hardy and undemanding, it offers a reliable area of colour in a cottage garden or herbaceous border.
Silene dioica ‘Rollie’s Favourite’ is bred from the native wild Red Campion, which is still a familiar and welcome sight, particularly in deciduous woods and hedgerows. As a result, it is hugely attractive to native pollinators.
