Description


Long flowering cartwheels of colour in proud pink Silene dioica is a familiar species should you happen to live on the Isle of Man. The local islanders refer to this plant as the 'fairy flower' and it is considered bad luck to pick it. Your Silene dioica 'Rollies Favourite' is a recently introduced variety from the Netherlands. This semi-evergreen plant forms a clump of fuzzy, oval leaves. From May to September, neat, cartwheel-shaped blooms with 5 lobed petals appears on semi-trailing stems. This profuse display of bold pink, white-eyed flowers offer you vibrant colour throughout your plant's long flowering season. Over time, your Silene dioica 'Rollies Favourite' naturalises in your garden to provide ground cover in the front of your border or in your rockery. This floriferous plant also puts on a brilliant display in a patio container. Pollinators adds a zip of energy to your garden, while wildlife leave your plant alone. Alkaline to neutral, well-drained soil encourages your silene to thrive. Your hardy perennial will also prefer a location with an east, south or west-facing aspect which offers full or part sunshine. In 2 to 5 years, your Silene dioica 'Rollies Favourite' will reach a maximum height and spread of 60cm by 45cm. After your first wave of flowers, cut the plant back to encourage a second burst of blooms. It is also a good idea to offer your plant some protection from wet, winter conditions.
