Lychnis chalcedonica - Maltese Cross

This is a listing for a pack of 500 seeds of this free flowering perennial.

It is a hardy herbaceous perennial that originally comes from Eastern Europe right across to China.  It has a host of common names including Burning Love, Dusky Salmon, Flower of Bristol, Jerusalem Cross, Maltese Cross and Nonesuch.  The name Maltese Cross derives from the shape of the petals which look like the arms on the Maltese Cross, although the flower actually has 5 petals.

The plant grows to 100 cm tall and is generally unbranched.  The flowers are borne in terminal clusters of up to 50 (although less than 30 is more typical), these appear in the summer and if the plants are routinely dead-headed the flowering period can be extended by several weeks.  The flowers are a bright orange in colour and look spectacular when planted en-masse or in smaller groups amongst other bedding plants.  Suitable for Zone 5 and up, they can also be grown successfully in containers and pots.  Where happy the plants will self seed.

The plant grows best in a well drained location with some full sun.

Full growing instructions can be downloaded from my website, details of which are on my 'Me' page
