Silene laciniata, or Cardinal Catchfly, is a small forb with large, stunning scarlet red flowers which are bird and butterfly pollinated. With a deep taproot, they can go through periods of drought but may go dormant in summer depending on heat and moisture. The cardinal catchfly can be found in hilly and mountainous regions. If planted with other plants, they may develop vine-like qualities. Part-shade to full sun.
