Catchfly I like the article

Care 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.

Temperatures CatchflySole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. We suggest growing the The Catchfly outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.These plants have an annual development, therefore when it becomes cold they deteriorate, and get completely eradicated.

Irrigation CatchflyTenere asciutto
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.

Adversity 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.

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