Family caryophyllaceae

From seed germinates quickly at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

A trading partner in Holland counts this among his favorite annuals (the Dutch common name is "witte bolderik"). It looks similar to A. githago, with white instead of purple flowers. I agree it's a nice one, so I hope it will give us some volunteer seedlings next year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
