Description

The Nodding Catchfly (Silene pendula) is a bushy, vigorous, low-growing annual. So named because small flies and gnats get stuck in the sticky seed pod. Produces clusters of charming pink blossoms with notched petals around a light pink center. Grows 6"-10" tall on a nodding stem with hairy, oval foliage. Beautiful cascading over a hanging basket or stone wall.
