Lychnis Vesuvius (Catchfly, Maltese Cross Campion)

Lychnis arkwrightii Vesuvius - This cultivar is perennial, but may be short-lived under some conditions. The plant grows up to 18” tall, with erect stems and is hardy in zones 4-10. The flowers are a brilliant orange-red. They are simple, but they are quite showy because they occur in heads (cymes) held well above the foliage. The flowers are clustered in small groups along the stems. They bloom for a few weeks in early- to mid-summer. The flowers are followed by interesting seed pods that turn brown when mature. The foliage emerges a dark bronzy-maroon to purplish color, then becomes bronze-green with purplish stems that enhance the vivid flower color. Family : Caryophyllaceae
