OK, Here's a closeup of my mystery plant. Maybe I just have my head stuck on Catchfly, or maybe I'm just not clear on Armeria...I thought it had grasslike leaves that form a clump with stems that form flower heads. Am I right? One of my perennial books lists an Armeria juniperifolia...maybe I'll check that one out. Take a look at this photo to see if it's any clearer...Thanks, Guys...WZ
Gee Whiz, I am such a dunce! It completely passed me by that Lychnis viscaria is "German Catchfly". That is, in fact the plant this one most reminds me of, but the size is wrong, and the leaves are a bit different. If you were to shrink German Catchfly, it would probably look much like this plant. Oh, well, I'll keep looking around and keep asking...WZ
Yeah, Baa...I'm pretty clueless at this point, so I'm reaching way out there for an answer. If you click on the pic to enlarge it, the foliage and flower clusters are pretty apparent. What isn't apparent is how small it is. It seems I tried the L. alpina and it didn't fit, but my memory fails me. Thanks for hanging in there!...WZ
