Maltese Cross

Certified Organic

Silene chalcedonica

Clusters of scarlet cross-shaped blooms.

It's believed the knights of Malta brought this flower to Europe from its native Russia, Siberia, and China. Today, you might recognize its shape from a common firefighter's symbol. Small, vermillion-colored, wide-open blooms cover the geranium-like clusters of this easy-to-grow perennial. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
