Silene armeria of Michigan Flora.
A Eurasian species, locally established as an escape from cultivation in dry open fields and roadsides, borders of forests, and garden areas. Collected in Michigan as early as 1832 by Nathan W. Folwell in “oak openings” near Tecumseh, Lenawee Co.
An attractive, usually small plant with glaucous foliage. Frajman et al. (2009) present clear evidence that Atocion is a separate lineage from Silene.
