A short-lived perennial it reseeds itself easily under the right conditions. What are these? Look below.
This cactus planter was situated a few feet away from where a clump of lychnis was growing. Recently I noticed some seedlings had germinated To begin with I wasn't completely sure that they were lychnis but as their seed leaves gave way to their first set of true leaves I saw those familiar fuzzy leaves. They are easily distinguished from lamb's ears seedlings by the point at the end of the leaf. They will remain in this pot until February when I will transplant them into their own 4" pots and later into the garden. I always find my best crop of seedlings growing in gravel substrate!
