Lychnis coronaria 'Alba' (Rose Campion)

White-Flowered Rose Campion, Rose Campion 'Alba', White Corn Rose


Lychnis coronaria 'Alba (Rose Campion) is an evergray short-lived perennial or biennial that deserves a spot in the landscape. Very attractive with its erect, white-gray flowering stalks covered with a profusion of rounded white flowers, it enjoys a long season of interest, is easy to grow, trouble free and not too fussy about soils or exposure. In short, the perfect perennial!

  • Grown as much for its decorative and abundant 1 inch flowers in bloom from late spring to late summer as for its basal rosette of woolly, silver-gray, evergreen leaves which provides interest in the winter garden, it thrives in full sun or part shade and enjoys average, medium, well-drained soils. While moist soils are preferred, it will tolerate poor, dry soils. Good drainage is essential!
  • Grows up to 18-36 in. tall (45-90 cm) and 12-18 in. wide (30-45 cm)
  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural society, this plant is an excellent choice for dry gardens, cottage or wild gardens, meadows and the perennial border where it provides fabulous color and texture contrast.
  • Low maintenance and highly disease-free, this plant is also drought tolerant and deer resistant.
  • Deadhead spent flowers to prevent undesired self-seeding. Cut back flower stems after flowering and leave the basal foliage on display for the rest of the season.
  • Native to southeastern Europe
