Nodding Catchfly (Silene Pendula Celina) 60 seeds (#1939)

Charming and whimsical with its bi-colored flowers, ‘Celina’ is a cultivar of Nodding catchfly and very showy plant in summer. The parent species is an annual native to the Mediterranean, short in stature and slightly cascading or spreading.
The leaves of ‘Celina’ are mid-green, hairy and oval-shaped. It is a bushy plant and sends up short stems in late spring to late summer, bearing loose clusters of deep rosy-pink blossoms with a light pink center. The flowers often hang downward and reveals the striped and toothed calcyes, or modified leaves that hold the flower.
Sow seeds of 'Celina' directly in the location where you wish it to grow. It needs full to partial sun and well drained soil. Like most catchflies, ‘Celina’ sefl-sows, dropping its seeds around it where they will germinate the next spring.
Use this pretty annual as a bedding plant in masses or in containers and hanging baskets. Pretty in the rockery or mixed border, it will scatter naturally for a pleasing effect through the years. Although summer-flowering, in subtropical areas it is best sown in autumn or winter.
