Night flowering Catchfly-silene noctiflora – is normally found on arable land and is well suited to light chalky soils. As its name suggests, the strongly scented flowers open up at night and attract moths. Night-flowering Catchfly typically grows to about 1-2 foot in height and is a nice plant to include in a garden flower border. The pale pink flowers appear in July and August. Night flowering Catchfly looks best growing with wildflowers such as Oxeye daisies, Knapweeds, Musk Mallow, Meadow Cranesbill and Field Scabious.

How to grow Night flowering Catchfly Seeds
Night flowering Catchfly seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost.. Night flowering Catchfly seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.
