Lychnis miqueliana 'Momobana' is a deer-resistant woodland perennial that hails from 5,000' elevation in the Japanese mountains of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. The upright stems of Lychnis miqueliana are clothed with small green leaves and topped with clusters of 1" fleshy-peach colored flowers from July-October...a time when very little is flowering in the woodland garden. Lychnis miqueliana 'Momobana' (translated as "pink flower") is unusual in color compared with typical vermilion flowers of this species. Lychnis miqueliana is best in open light shade or a couple of hours of sun in the morning.
