We've grown this off and on in our rock garden - it's not been a long-lived plant for us, so we start some new from seed once in a while - it's worth it, for the cheerful tufts of pink flowers in spring! They tuck away nicely in nooks and crannies.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

| Jules||Apr 16, 2009||Hi Rob, I come to your plant sale every year (since I heard about it, anyway). I just bought this plant labeled "viscaria" at Vogel's in Saylorsburg. They weren't sure if it was Zone 5 or 6, and couldn't find it in their perennial id books. Not surprised that your site popped up when I was trying to id it!!! So, anyway thanks for the info. I won't buy more until I see what happens. Thanks, see you on May 2nd.|

I have tried to source them from several plant dealers without success.
Your page would be a great help in obtaining it but I can't download the page onto my printer - why not?|
No idea - there are no special features to my page that would prevent printing. Try copying and pasting in a word processors, and printing from there.
