Hardy in poor soils, plant varieties of old-fashioned Campion in flower borders, cutting gardens and wild gardens. Flowers range from rich magenta and orange to the softest pastels to white. Easily grown from seed, they may be sown in wildflower fashion in fall or spring. Perennial types are available in cell packs or larger containers in fall or spring.
Few flowers reach this shade of deep scarlet. Each petal is in the shape of a heart. Look for white and double forms, too.
