Royal catchfly (Silene regia) a Kentucky native perennial

I am thoroughly enjoying the striking color and form of Royal catchfly (Silene regia). It’s a Kentucky native perennial that grows 2-4 ft. tall.

The blossoms are a brilliant red and stand out from a distance. They are also well deserving of a closer look. I want more of them in my garden next summer.

  1. Another case of my being introduced to something I didn’t know existed and, you’re right – so striking!
