Brilliant fire red, magenta, or sparkling white, campions come in vivid colors. Otherwise called catchflies, their sticky calyces are sometimes inflated to do a better job of trapping small flies. Low-growing species are often from alpine regions, tolerating intense cold, but not wet feet. Taller species are ideal in dryish wild or native plant gardens where they mix well with grasses and other natives. They often self-seed generously.
Blooming at the same time, the bright yellow daisies of tickseed mix well with scarlet fire pink in sunny native plant gardens and dry meadows.Snow-in-summer
Gray leaves and sparkling white flowers make 8-inch-tall snow-in-summer a good companion for pink Carolina catchfly in rock gardens and crevice gardens.Thyme
Reiter's red thyme makes neat mats of green foliage and in late spring produces spikes of crimson flowers that blend well with pink and lavender forms of moss campion in well-drained walls and rock gardens.
