I thought this was lambs ear but I saw a post in heirlooms that - I think - said this is rose campion. I know Dave needs to reassign my name as clueless but I really do appreciate all of you helping me learn :-)
Could you please save some seed? I just learned that this is a biennial plant and would like to get one going next year again so that when they reseed, it will happen each year. I started mine, gave plants away, and also the extra seed. I never think first!!
I deadheaded a bunch today and will save for you. This grows all over the place so if you will send me an email in the fall, I will send you plants along with the seed. Actually, I'll make a note in my calendar to email you around October??? I need to start doing that, otherwise, I forget.
Brugie: Rose campion is a short-lived perennial that is often treated as a biennial. Yours may come back. I planted some last summer and they bloomed, but it is still too early for me to know if they survived the winter. I planted more this spring. They germinate & transplant quite well.
