Ground cover with dark green oval leaves around hairy stem. 5 white overlapping petals.
No interactions present.
Corrected scientific name to Silene maritima
which comes up as Silene uniflora. Obviously
a correction unknown to me. Sorry! Dave.
No problem, Dave. I also had the name Silena maritima which i-spot corrected.
It is not White campion,as white has not got overlapping petals and the petal is also split on white,so it is sea campion.
The leaves and calyx are totally wrong for Sea Campion. It looks like typical White Campion to me.
Thanks Tiggrx. I've puzzled over this one for a while - trying to identify it from descriptions and drawings. Thanks for your help.
Thanks for comment. It was the overlapping petals that swayed my choice. I'll have a look at them both in on-line encyclopaedia!
