Lychnis 'Orange Gnome'

Genus: Lychnis.

Species: Lychnis artwrightii.

One of many lychnis that will survive the cold weather, this variety has dark almost purple foliage with bright orangey blooms more like the classic maltese cross. Not as tall as other varieties trusted here, this one is more interesting through out the year with unusual foliage, and of course self contrasting, a favorite feature for me. This is the first year in my garden and it hasn't overwintered as of yet, but I feel very optimistic about it. I'm hoping to see an enormous increase next year.
