Silene Noctiflora has distinctively sticky stems and its sweet fragrance, and is an excellent choice for a wildflower garden. The flowers of Night-Flowering Catchfly have a white, or pale pink face and the petals are a creamy yellow on the back. As its name implies, this dainty little annual comes into its own at night, when the flowers open, and the scent can be fully appreciated. It is pollinated by several species of night-flying moths. Believed to have been brought to Britain by Neolithic farmers, it is declining in the wild but can still be found in parts of the Norfolk countryside.
