Red campion (Silene dioica)
Red campion (Silene dioica)
Red campion can be found growing abundant on rich soils at the edges of woods or in hedgerows. Its name is derived from Silenus, the god of the woodlands in Greek mythology and the second part of its scientific name, dioica, means 'two houses', and refers to the fact that each Red campion plant has flowers of one sex only, so that two plants are needed to make seed. Female flowers have no stamens, while male flowers have only a small, non-functioning ovary.
