Flower - Lychnis Chalcedonica Alba
Lychnis Chalcedonica Alba
This is the albino form of the famous "Maltese Cross" flower, having congested heads of ivory-white blooms. Very long-lived and hardy, it can make a truly dazzling splash of light in the mid-border, and especially in any dark area needing to be brightened up.
Sow seeds onto a good soil-based compost, covering the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Although they can be sown at any time, these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging, but spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth.
