Catchfly I like the article

Generalities Catchfly
The Catchfly have a one or two year development cycle. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Catchfly is medium in size and 45 cm in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a pink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Exposure CatchflySole pieno
The Catchfly should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Catchfly should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.These plants have an annual development, therefore when it becomes cold they deteriorate, and get completely eradicated.

Watering CatchflyTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.

Treatments Catchfly
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Catchfly
We advise locating these annual plants in a dissolved soil, with an elevated drainage.
