(Syn. Silene laciniata ssp. major) A 2' perennial with 1-2" red flowers. This grows within 5' of Morro Bay in beach sand but grows in many diverse soils and sites. In Los Osos it grows with Potentilla Egedii, Lupinus Chamissonis, and Erysimum insulare. I would not use this for a drought tolerant plant except in its narrow element. It is native near the coast from Santa Cruz to Baja. The red flowers are used by hummingbirds and the foliage is eaten by rabbits(usually leaving the flowers alone.)

Silene laciniata angustifolia tolerates seaside conditions and sand.
Silene laciniata angustifolia is great for a butterfly garden.
Silene laciniata angustifolia's foliage type is deciduous.
Silene laciniata angustifolia's flower color is red.
