Family: Pink (Caryophyllaceae)

Sturdy herbaceous perennial native to Europe, North Africa, Asia Minor, Armenia and Siberia.  Flowers from June to August, purple-magenta on a wooly-white plant.  In olden times, the wooly leaves were used as lamp wicks. Traditional usage (TWM, Homeopathy): paralysis, sedative, kidney stones.  Source of khellin. This is a classic low dose botanical.  Plant prefers full sun to part shade and fast-draining, mesic to dry soils.  The plant resides as a ground-hugging rosette in the first year and then produces multiple, 3 to 4 foot long, flowering stalks in the second year.  Space plants 1 foot apart.
