A Herbal Husband Favorite!

I'm always talking about my favorite plants in the garden.  Here is one of The Herbal Husband's, Lychnis chalcedonica or Maltese cross.  A cousin of the rose campion.  I got the seeds several years ago when I was a member of the Royal Horticultural Society in England.   They grew wild outside Roman stadiums and were used to crown the champion, usually the lion.  You can make up your own ending!!  Hope you had a good day.  I'll talk to you tomorrow.
