Catchfly Nodding White Snowdrop Silene Pendula is an annual flowering plant native to Mediterranean. Nodding Catchfly Snowdrop seeds are planted directly outdoors in spring, and these seeds germinate fast, so Drooping Catchfly establishes itself quickly and starts to bloom at no time producing the abundant loose clusters of showy bright-white flowers that attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. White Nodding Catchfly is a charming choice for the spring or summer garden.
Catchfly Nodding White Snowdrop looks stunning in mass plantings and flower beds, cascading over walls and garden edges, growing in containers, hanging baskets, and rock gardens. The Silene Pendula seeds can be planted directly outdoors in fall or winter in subtropical regions, and Nodding Catchfly grows best in full sun or partial shade and average, sandy well drained soil tolerating even clay. The Drooping Catchfly ground cover flower self-sows itself freely and grows year after year.
