Here’s an amazing hybrid of Silene regia (the wake robin, one of the Southeast’s favorite wildflowers). Totally hardy and sterile. The beautiful coral and cut flower petals lie close to the compact foliage and being sterile, the flowers seem to come out continually! Thrives in heat and humidity. Try in containers. Needs good drainage. Blooms all summer if cut back periodically.
