Mike's Blog - Day 123

Rose Campion for you today, Lychnis coronaria.

Here it is in close-up.

This is almost a weed, loves a dry spot and full sun with those silver leaves giving protection again, just like the Lavender and Astelia. The flowers are incredibly bright. This grows in the naturally hot dry spot at the base of the sandstone wall near the greenhouse. I don’t remember planting it. I think it has just found its way there.

The bamboo seems to have sorted itself out and is now growing much straighter and faster.
