What is this plant?
I bought some lychnis flos-cuculi (ragged robin) seeds off the internet as I read butterflies like them. However, after planting and growing the seedlings I have discovered that there are two types of plant growing. One of these I have identified to be the ragged robin but the other I am unsure about. Please help me identify it so I can decide if I want to grow them on and where in the garden I should do this. The plant appears to have maroon coloured stems and lower leaves and the leaves are very hairy, the plant seems to be a low spreader but can't really tell yet. It has small white flowers (see the picture). Thanks!!!
