Red Campion is an attractive perennial plant with arrow shaped leaves and narrow stems, producing a number of reddish pink flowers between April and July.

It is an ideal species for planting in semi-shade, in front of hedgerows and on north facing banks.  The plant can also be established successfully in woods by seeding, given sufficient shade to provide significant areas of bare earth for plant establishment.  In open sites Red Campion appears to prefer calcareous soils.

Red Campion is an important nectar source for butterflies and bumblebees and some moth species feed on the leaves.
