This rare native species found only in a few areas of the Midwest is a must for brightening the late summer garden. Its scarlet-red flowers are extremely showy and will attract hummingbirds eager to feed from the nectar-rich blossoms. Plant in enriched, well-drained sandy or loam soils and irrigate regularly if conditions are dry. A wonderful flowering companion for Agastache 'Black Adder'.

Not a beginner plant
By Colorado Gardener
from Centennial , Colorado
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Silene regia:
The description for this plant might have been better if it had included that this plant has a taproot. Having said that my plant, not obtained from HCG incidentally, is still struggling to get established after 2 years. Moreover, plants with taproots are that much harder to get established if the taproot is disturbed or when transplanted. Nevertheless, It is a difficult plant to get established in my Colorado garden. This is not a plant for the beginner gardener.NOTE: I have purchased HCG plants and find them all to be very reliable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Still patient and waiting
from Denver CO
See all my reviews
Ordered this in spring of 2016. When it arrived it had no leaves on a small ball of a root system. Planted anyway and it did show any sign of life after 2 months. Notified HCG and they sent a replacement plant for spring 2017. This plant was more like I usually get, healthy. It grew a few leaves in the first 3-4 weeks then it appeared something was chewing on the new leaves. I put down some slug bait and that seemed to stop the chewing but did not make any more new leaves appear. As of today 12/1/2017 I checked and it still had a few green leaves. I will see what happens in the spring

Poor plant received
Received this plant along with about 8 others from HCG. There were no leaves on the "plant"I received and no identification marker. I planted it anyway and it did not survive. I notified HCG and will receive a replacement plant this spring
It was growing.
By Bucky the planter
from Central Oregon
The plant did not respond well to our summer. Perhaps it will grow strong and vigorous in its second year. No where close to producing flowers. Height was 4 inches at best.

This Silene Regia is rare in Maryland. It was s;ow to have a presence, it took three years, but this year strollers stop to admire the five planted near the roadway and in front of the Meta sequoia. The few seeds saved from last year have yet to appear. The attached photos tell the story better.

slow starter, beautiful plant
from Cheyenne, WY
I planted one of these six years ago. I found it to be a slow starter, but once it was established, it grew steadily year after year. Even though here in WY is on the very edge of it's zone suitability, the plant has thrived, reaching about 5' tall and covered with blooms. Hummingbirds aren't common here, but a couple of them always manage to find it.

A tender transplant
from Brimfield, IL
The plant arrived in not so satisfactory condition. I contacted the company when I received it to tell them about the condition of the plant and they suggested to plant it and see how it did. I planted according to specific instructions but it struggled. Unfortunately, it didn't do well. I called High Country back and because of my initial phone call to them, they were very considerate and refunded my entire amount for the plant.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
