Description

Height x Spread: 20cm x 30cm

Delicate white flowers with gently ruffled petals and fresh green, bladder-like calyxes, appear on short stems over ankle-high cushions of pointed grey-green leaves. Evergreen. Great choice for a wildlife garden too. It just needs a trim in autumn to retain its neat appearance. 

This neat, compact 'Campion' is actually quite a tough and versatile character, adapting to both dry and more moist soil conditions. Slightly lax in habit, it looks beautiful planted in a crevice of a wall, tumbling gently over the edge of steps, or grown between pavers in a path. It thrives in a neutral to alkaline, free draining soil, in full sun to light shade.
