The rose campion plants in my side border, which have flowers whose deep pink hue can best be described as vibrant, were given to me by my sister in our Plant Swap last year. (At that time we called it a poppy but have since learned the correct name.) She told me how easy the plants were to grow and that they would spread easily from the two shoots. I was delighted with the blossoms last year:

This year both of the original plants have expanded dramatically, and a small new shoot recently appeared nearby. I moved that to a third area in order to continue my symmetrical design for the side border. I just couldn't be happier with these beautiful plants!
