Campion, Catchfly

We saw this inhabitant of high alpine meadows in Sichuan in May of 2006 and were blown away by the small carpet of large pink flowers. Did we ever want that bad but no seed to be had. Fortunately a Norwegian friend collected seed and we can offer this rarity. Goes brown the winter so don't freak out.
