This species can be a major colormaker in a meadow’s first year bloom. It throws gorgeous, rose/purple clusters of small flowers in only about six to eight weeks after germination. None-So-Pretty is a favorite with children, and one of the species that thrills first-time meadow gardeners with its prolific, foolproof bloom.
(The common name, catchfly, refers to the plant’s sticky sap. The flowers do not attract or catch flies.)
