Rose Campion Orange Gnome
Brilliant Orange on Bronze
Rose Campion Orange Gnome, Lychnis arkwrightii 'Orange Gnome', displays brilliant orange-scarlet flowers measuring 1.5" across.
The flowers are produced in abundance in early summer and last nearly eight weeks. Lychnis tends to be a short-lived perennial, but it will self-seed; deer resistant.
You will be amazed with the compact purplish bronze foliage of Lychnis 'Orange Gnome' as it creates a dazzling contrast to the bright flowers.
If you have always wanted hummingbirds to visit your yard, they will because they love this intense color!
You will discover that the foliage is nearly as pretty as the flowers, having a purplish bronze cast over the naturally dark green leaves. It is hard to resist a contrast that is so impressive.
After flowering, the swollen seed pods provide additional interest to extend the season.
Plant 'Orange Gnome' in well drained soil and you will avoid potential disease issues. Early in the season, pinch these plants back to encourage a more compact habit.
