Plant details

Pink Pirouette' is a new plant for summer containers and baskets. It is quite unique for a silene, because it has an open, almost trailing habit. It produces a profusion of small whorl-like flowers in sumptuous pink, and each plant will spread to 60cm (24in). You can also grow it in the rock garden, or the front of the border. Sow the seed indoors in spring, and plant outside in late spring.
