Hello, I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if I am going about this the wrong way,,,,,,,


I Am trying to identify a plant that I saw on a television program this evening.....

It is about 2 ft tall, has rather spindly silver/grey/green stem and foliage, and littledark pinky red flowers.   I used to have some in my garden in England, but never did know the name of them.  Does my description ring a bell with anyone?

Would be very appreciative of any information given.

Thank You


I've got some in my garden but I can't remember what it's called! Sorry 


A quick google suggests Lychnis Coronaria. What do you think?

Hello bougle

Welcome to the forum

Could you post a photo ?  We will know then for sure.  It could be lychnis coronaria, going by your description.  Or, look up Lychnis coronaria and compare it 



Bougie, was it on the prog about Great Dixter? I saw some just like it on there 


Thank you all so much,,,,,  sorry I didn't get back to you all sooner, but I have been tucked up in bed with hot water bottles, Lemsip (or my own version nd decongestant!! Just surfaced for a little while before going back.

I didn't see the beginning of the program so not sure what it was called, but it was about a beautiful old house near Leicester, and the man who designed the gardens if that is any help?  Sorry but not  been very alert over the last few days.

I will go away now and follow the link Dovefromabove has given me and come back to you all a little later on.

Once again, many thanks to you all.


4th Panda ... Yes, that was the program, thank you.......


Yippee .... yes that was it, Lychnis coronaria!!!   Now I just have to try and find some seeds over here, although I expect I will have to send to the UK for some!
