CATCHFLY

Family CARYOPHYLLACEAE
Silene species
Biennial/Annual

This genus contains some pleasing annuals and biennials.

Silene pendula, an annual from the Mediterranean region, grows six to nine inches tall with lance-shaped, hairy leaves, and stems that sprawl outward at the base branching upward to bear loose, pendulous racemes of flesh-pink flowers, rather less than half an inch across.
It has various forms in
var. alba, white;
Silene uniflora White Bells

var. bonnettii, purple;
var. rosea, bright rose,

One of compact habit, Silene armeria, the Sweet William Catchfly, of South Europe, is one to two feet tall, with three-inch lance-shaped leaves and terminal flat-topped clusters of pink flowers, a little more than half an inch across.

Silene asterias, one to two feet, is an annual native to Rumania and Macedonia, and has rosy-purple flowers.

Silene compacta, a biennial of Asia Minor, grows eighteen inches, with many pink flowers in dense clusters.

Seed may be sown in early autumn or spring and thinned to six inches apart; cloche protection will result in earlier blooming.

Propagation is from seed.

The flowering season is from midsummer until late summer.

Silene
Hardy Annual.
Four inches to a foot.
Flowers pink or rose, in May.

The perennial Silenes, being chiefly Alpine, and requiring rockery conditions are not treated of here; the annual kinds are all admirable for spring bedding, and supply a wealth of colour between the earlier bulbs and the summer display.
The seed should be sown in the open ground, early in August, and the seedlings pricked out six inches apart.
By October the plants should form thick tufts of leaves, almost touching each other; they should be lifted carefully and put out into their flowering quarter.
They may be used for edgings, or planted in plots or separate beds.
Their colour harmonises extremely well with Forget-me-not, and if possible the two should be brought together.

The best kind is Silene pendula compacta, bright rose single flowers, about six inches high.
Avoid the taller straggling kinds.
There are also varieties with single and double white flowers, double pink, and one with yellow “variegated” leaves.
These may be grown where there is room and time, but should not supersede pendula compacta.
Directly the flowering is over, fork up the plants and prepare the ground for summer bedding.
