WS "Ray's Gold Campion" from Plant World Seeds. Two keepers really shining at an early stage. Others have come up pale green or green which will be disposed of.

Funny how the gold looks anemic. I would have to keep them all but separate to see how they turned out. Perhaps the next set of leaves will turn gold too.

Now I need to go look at the full grown version of Rays' Gold Campion. And I'll have to keep one eye closed or I'll be wanting more seed... dang it!

only problem with keeping them all is I have about 8 different varieties of silene so anything that doesn't color up quick get's tossed. I sowed a flat of Graham's Delight and only got two variegated ones out of the lot. Kept all the seedlings for a year before I was sure no others were going to variegate. Only a little better numbers on Purple Prince.
