About Silene


Silene are annuals, biennials, or herbaceous evergreen perennials with attractive foliage and clusters of intriguing lantern-shaped blooms that flower throughout the summer months. They are best suited to flower beds and borders within cottage, informal and wildflower gardens. You should expect to see Silene grow to an approximate height of 1m (40”) and a spread of 50cm (20”).

How to plant Silene


Silene are best suited to well-drained soil of chalk or loam within an alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Dig a hole that will accommodate the depth and width of your plant. You may wish to amend the planting area with a generous amount of organic matter and mix thoroughly. Water well once in place to settle the surrounding soil.

How to care for Silene


Silene are easy to grow and low maintenance plants. They require regular watering so that the soil is kept moist. Cut back the stems after flowering to encourage a second flush of flowers.

How to propagate Silene


It is possible to propagate Silene by seed during the autumn.
