Silene acaulis-Moss Campion

Some will say the best way to propagate Silene or Moss Campion is by seed but those of you that propagate Phlox subulata should be able to dig up this dwarf perennial in the spring and divide the roots and transplant. One good thing about this groundcover is the Zones it is hardy in from 2-9 and is evergreen, however it does best in a moist gravely soil, is not drought tolerant, prefers cool summers, will take light foot traffic, and is deer resistant, so New England it is. The tiny pink flowers will bloom from May to July and trimming back after flowering will make the plant more dense and its reaches a height of only 1".
