It is Lychnis arkwrightii Vesuvios and this is the third time I have planted them. This particular plant has held on now for three years and I am not sure what I am doing wrong because they are really easy plants.
It could of course be the temperatures in winter but this year is the first year that it has seeds so I will collect some.
This is the whole plant - the leaves start off dark red and then gradually change to a greeny red. Lovely plant.
We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
