This brightly coloured Lychnis has stunning cerise coloured flowers on top of grassy leaves. A perfect choice for the wildflower garden, perennial borders, rock gardens or containers.   

A stunning plant when planted en-masse. Commonly known as German Catchfly, Lychnis viscaria splendens "Firebird" attracts butterflies as well as being an excellent cut flower. Plant in a sunny spot and keep moist soil although we find a good layer of mulch will help retain moisture levels in the hotter months.
