Rose campion is unforgettable in full bloom because of its abundant hot-pink flowers. But before it puts on its floral show -- and after the flowers fade -- its silvery-gray leaves are ornamental on their own. Note: Rose campion can self-seed abundantly; some gardeners find it a bit of a pest once it's established.
