Please can anyone tell me the name of this plant?

Sheffield, United Kingdom Gb

It has silvery foliage, with pink flowers. It is clearly perennial. The flowers die and turn to pods which contain the seeds, which self seed. It grows to a height of about a metre and is spreads slowly. I have just harvested some seeds and would love to know what to label them!




This is Lychnis Coronaria.

Thank you so much! Now I can learn how to look after it...which seems fairly easy as it's doing very well without my help so far!

I think you will find they are pretty tough and not bothered by lack of water. They seed themselves around my garden so you don't need to do much!

I have a lot of these round my garden and wouldn't be without them. They are always reliable,long lasting, very pretty and as others have said, pretty tough. You are unlikely to find yourself without them in the future unless you decide to weed them all out. They sometimes come in pink or white, or white with a pink centre. I'm glad you're enjoying them!
