Description

This double-flowered little beauty is a dwarf form of the popular Rozanne and Friends™ introduction Lychnis ‘Jenny’. The compact bushy clumps, just 14″ (36cm) tall, are topped with masses of soft lavender-pink flowers from early summer into autumn. Has a longer blooming period due to the flowers being sterile. Discovered by Paul Gooderham at Bressingham, UK, in a patch of its parent ‘Jenny.’
