Comment

Silene armeria , Sweet William catchfly, or Muscitri Nadeshiko (Scientific name: Stonene armeria) is a cold-tolerant annual plant of the family Caryophyllaceae, which is native to central and southern Europe. Some naturalized plants native to Europe are spilling and growing wild on the roadside. The leaves grow like a stalk and are opposite to the other. The mucus that comes out of the stem nodes sticks when touched, so small insects stick together, but are not carnivorous plants. In early summer, a large number of small five-petaled flowers of deep pink (sometimes rarely white varieties) with long calyxes are bloomed on the tip of the stem. The flowers are similar to Moss phlox (Shiba Zakura (Japanese), scientific name:phlo subulate), which is a different genus, but Moss phlox is not as tall.
