Discover Tours

The Moss Campion (Silene acaulis) is a small flower that only grows to be about 6 inches tall. It's stem is very short, and it has mossy leaves. The Moss Campion can be found in Europe, Asia, and North America. It usually blooms between June and August, and its flowers are white or pink. The best time to see the Moss Campion is in mid-summer.

The Moss Campion is a small but mighty flower that brings a touch of magic to any garden it graces. Standing no taller than six inches, this pretty plant has all the features of a classic English cottage garden flower – short stem, mossy leaves, white or pink flowers – but with a distinctly wildflower feel.

The Moss Campion is native to Europe, Asia and North America, and can be found in rocky mountain regions and alpine meadows. It is most commonly seen in bloom between June and August, when its pretty flowers add a splash of colour to the landscape.
