Lychnis Coronaria Oculata - Angel's Blue
This is the pink-eyed white-flowered form of the woolly, grey-leaved Lychnis Coronaria, which comes quite true from seed, but the pink eye varies quite bizarrely with the season and weather conditions. It is a lovely long-lived cottage garden plant.
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.
