Catchfly (None-so-Pretty) – Silene armeria
This flower is a major color maker in the garden or meadow. Bright rose/purple clusters of small flowers and a very quick germination and bloom rate. None-So-Pretty is a favorite because of its fool proof bloom. Great for beginning and experienced gardeners alike. Its common name refers to the sticky sap from the plant, but don’t worry, it doesn’t catch flies! Great as decorative flowers for meadows, gardens, pots and more.
