Gardening Tips from Fran
Silene acaulis is an excellent choice for rock gardens and outer edge borders. It performs best in gritty places where drainage is excellent. It moguls into unique shapes if given boundaries and is a really neat "touch me" plant. Moss Campion is a superior fairy garden plant to use for adorable, little rolling hills!
