This new border and pot plant, Lychnis Scarlet O’Hara, brings to mind the beautiful actress from the romantic film ‘Gone with the Wind’. Plant this spirited movie star with large, scarlet flowers and dark tinted leaves in your garden.

From June to October you can enjoy the star-shaped flowers; they seem to be luminous. The velvety, warm red draws all the attention, just like a film diva. Bright colours are the current trend, so this new plant should not be missing from your border or in a pot on your patio. You can make trendy combinations with white and purple flowers and this newcomer also combines very well with grey-green foliage.

Not only do the flowers of this particular Lychnis steal the show but the purplish leaves are also particularly graceful.  Lychnis Scarlet O’Hara is decorative even before flowering. The strikingly coloured flowers are wonderful in combination with the dark leaves. The growth is compact and even with sturdy stems up to 50cm, and it flowers every year and is hardy. This strong perennial prefers full sun in a nutrient-rich soil. Protect young plants at the beginning of the season from slugs.
