Can anyone ID this. There are several photos in the DB under S. chalcendonica that were submited by Daylilybaby. I sent an E-mail to Dayliliybaby a month ago with no response.

Looks like it could be Lychnis viscaria to me. German Catchfly

Thank you all. Dame's Rocket it is. I proposed the move of all the Daylilybaby photos. Here is a DB photo for comparison. I tip my hat to you.

This was already addressed back in May, and Daylilybaby was given the correct ID at that time, but the images were never moved.

The thread "2 plants = (Hesperis); (Silene)" in Plant ID forum

Thank you for bringing up the issue again, Leslie.

@Daylilybaby still has two more photos in Silene chalcedonica that were uploaded with the group just moved but i'm not sure if it is the same plant. Maybe she can clear this up. @Zuzu

Those two images actually do look like Silene chalcedonica. Maybe @Daylilybaby had two plants growing close together and posted the correct Silene foliage first and then posted the Hesperis blooms by mistake when the nearby Hesperis plant bloomed.

I believe they're all Hesperis.
