Maltese Cross

 

I’m happy I decided to give this plant – Maltese Cross (campion, latin ‘lychnis’) – a try in my big sunny perennial bed. It takes the cold, it blooms from late spring ’til August, it’s a brilliant jewel-tone red and it handles conditions of wet and drought fairly well. It grows 2-3 feet tall but only about 6 inches wide and would look best in group plantings in the middle to back of a border.
