Q. transplanting rose campion

I was given some rose campion starters this summer and planted them. I would like to transplant them to a different area of my garden. Can I transplant them now, in the fall, or in the spring?

Fall, just before the ground gets to hard to work, is probably the best time, although I have heard some experienced gardeners say the best time to transplant perennials is any time you have the time.

Q. Rose Campion blooming

Will my Rose Campions bloom the first year? I planted seedlings and plants grown from seed and from bare root cuttings (first or second year old plants bought online) this spring (zone 6) and am wondering if they may flower later this summer or fall. Thanks for any your thoughts.

I need to add that some Rose Compion plants have indeed been called unpredictable and may not bloom until their 2nd year, then die. Thus depending upon the actual plant, you may not see blooms until next season.

If the plants are growing and doing well, they should bloom for you this summer. Here are some links to articles on them for you too:

If the plants are done blooming I would trim them back prior to moving them.
You can make the move now with some extra watering and care.

Make sure you water daily for the first 2 weeks, then cut back from there. Water regularly through the fall. Mulch will help with moisture and cold protection.

Here is link to refresh you on the care requirements.

Q. Name of a weed

What is the plant in the attached photo? It is leggy and growing in my flower bed. It makes little white flowers on top of a seed pod that looks like a Chinese lantern. The flowers open at dusk and most close during the day. I remember it growing in pastures when I was a child but don’t know what kind of plant it is. Does anyone know it’s name?

Q. Can I dig up a piece of rose campion before it blooms to give to someone?

I want to give someone one of my rose campions; it hasn’t bloomed yet. Would it be OK to dig it up and give it? Please add me to your list, it’s not letting me do it.  Thank you.

Rose Campion blooms in late spring to early summer so your plants may already be blooming. The best time to dig plants for giveaway is soon after they emerge in the spring when the foliage is still young. If the plant is not blooming yet, go ahead and dig some for your friend, but they might not bloom this year. You can also save some seed to give her for next year.

Q. Sowing Rose Campions deadheads in summer, will it grow next Spring?

Should I keep the deadheads in a container and sow them during winter, or is it ok to throw them on an empty spot during summer in hope it will sprout next Spring?
Thank you in advance!

By the time they are completely dead, they should have cast their seeds already. Cutting them before this happens can result in immature seeds. Keeping a completely dead flower head MIGHT get you some seeds that have remained, but this is not a guarantee.
