Orange Campion (Lychnis x haageana Molten Lava) 50 seeds (#1516)

The showy orange-red flowers of orange campion brighten the garden from June to September. A short-lived, clump forming perennial, it is a hybrid derived from a cross between brilliant campion (Lychnis fulgens) and crown campion (Lychnis sieboldii). And though a hybrid it comes true from seed.
The tapered, slightly hairy leaves are medium green and ovate to lance-shaped. They occur at the plant base and in opposite pairs along the upright floral stems. From early to midsummer, stem tips become adorned with rounded but loose clusters of starry orange to orange-red blooms. Each flower has five slightly hairy petals, each split into a V-shape at the tips. Brownish seed capsules follow pollination and ripen by late summer. Seeds that fall to the ground may germinate that fall or the following spring.
Plant the orange campion in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. Avoid heavy clay soils. Where summers are hot, plants may go dormant after flowering. Cut off spent flower stems to encourage a second round of flowering weeks later. Orange campion is a vibrant filler plant for the mixed border where hot bright color is needed.
