Commonly called Catchfly, Wild Catchfly, None-So-Pretty, or Sweet William Catchfly, this annual puts on a fabulous display of brilliant magenta colored blooms during mid-summer. Silene Armeria Catchfly is a native to Europe, but it has been grown here in the United States since the early 1800's and is an extremely popular wildflower. Catchfly wildflowers are good at re-seeding if the blooms are left to go to seed and the wildflower seeds fall on bare ground. Typically, None So Pretty Catchfly will grow quickly and bloom heavily before it is killed by frost, but in mild winters, it has been known to be a short-lived perennial. Sweet William Catchfly wildflowers will grow in all regions of North America in full sun or partial shade. It is excellent in meadows or other naturalized settings.
