Silene ‘Jackson Valentine’

Silene virginica Jackson Valentine6Silene ‘Jackson Valentine‘ is one of those plants you just can’t help but photograph.  In fact, I seem to wind up taking a new picture each day during its spring flowering season. Here it is in the garden yesterday in all it’s radiance.  This incredible native thrives in part sun with good drainage.  It just doesn’t get much better than this.

  1. ‘Prairie Fire’ has performed very well for me in my garden. The only flaw is that it tends to tip over–probably best planted among other plants. I think my original plant has finally petered out (after 5+ years) but I have several seedlings coming along around it. Great color, and good re-bloom if deadheaded promptly.
