Silene bellidiodes is a very hardy, evergreen perennial plant with tall, erect sticky stems and rosettes of leaves at the base.
The flowering stem has a few branches with scented white or pink flowers with deeply divided petals, opening in the evening, at the tip of each branch from October to April.
The white flowers shine like neon lights at night and attract moths to pollinate them, and the, long, tubular calyxes of the flowers are pale green striped with dark red veins.
This is an excellent addition to a sunny grassland garden.
Traditionally it is used as a love potion.
