These hairy, five-petalled perennials can be found in hedgerows, on woodland margins, cultivated ground, roadside verges and waste ground. A native species it is common and widespread, and can be seen flowering from May to August.
The Pink Campion above is a hybrid of the White Campion (Silene latifolia) and the Red Campion (Silene dioica), which commonly occur where the two parent plants occur.
And as a comparison, see the Sea Campion below, which prefers coastal habitats.
