Silene uniflora ‘Compacta’ full sun

An all-star ground cover named for its decorative bladder-shaped calyxes, this European Campion stays smothered with dainty five-petaled flowers all summer long. Low gray-green cushions of tiny, lancelike fleshy leaves promote the pink-blushed white blooms and curious rosy sable-colored “balloons” on short, upright branching stems.

Easy going and irresistible, it can be nestled alongside a pathway, in a trough or the rockery, or anywhere its deeply rooted semi-evergreen habit is provided a well drained sunny site.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 6" high x 8" wide; hardy to zone 3.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
