White Campion

Silene latifolia – This is one of my favourite wild flowers, and it is always a pleasure to see on my walks. According to fossil records it was introduced to Britain during the Bronze Age. It flowers between May and October across much of Britain, except the far north and west.

  1. We have similar here although they are not native. I believe here it is also called Bladder Campion-Silene vulgaris. When dry the bladder splits and ejects the seeds.

  2. That’s another new thing learned today. I never knew silene was white campion and I’ve had loads in the garden. You’re a mine of nature knowledge.

    1. I have picked it up as I have gone along and come across these nature’s wonders over the years. I have quite a few books on wildflowers and everything and almost anything of the natural world.
