Bladder Campion – Silene vulgaris (formerly Silene cucubalus) is part of the Pink Family (Caryophylaceae) and is described has a bladder-like flower with white petals.  

This herbaceous perennial plant may grows to be about two feet tall, often branching at its base.  Stems and leaves are a light green colour without hairs.  Flowers have five white petals with deep clefts so that they may be mistaken as having ten petals.  Plants in flower tend to lean to one side due to the weight of the blooms.

The specimen below was in flower in mid-summer.  The blooming period lasts 1-2 months with flowers being replaced by an ovoid capsule containing small brown seeds.  This plant’s root system consists of a taproot with short rhizomes.  

The bladder-like calyx is easy to recognize.  It is a network of veins and is often a dull pink colour.  This plant derived its name from early settlers who likened its calyx shape to the bladders of livestock.  The flower is particularly rampant and the photographs below are at its flowering stage.

The Earth
Laughs in Flowers


~ Ralph Waldo 
Emerson ~

 

 

"We can complain 
because rose bushes 
have thorns, 
or rejoice because 
thorn bushes 
have roses."

~ Abraham Lincoln ~

 

 

"I wonder if
the Daffodil,
shrinks from the
touch of frost,
And when her veins
grow stiff & still,
She dreams
that life is lost?
Ah, if she does,
how sweet a thing
Her resurrection
day in spring!

~ Emma C. Dowd ~

 

 

"Bred feeds the body, indeed, but flowers 
feed also the soul."

~ The Koran ~

 


"If seeds in the 
black earth 
can turn into 
such beautiful roses, 
what might not 
the heart of man 
become in its 
long journey 
toward the stars?"

~ G.K. Chesterton ~

 


 

"I'd rather have
roses on my table
than  diamonds
around my neck."
~ Emma Goldman ~

 

 

 

"Where flowers bloom
so does hope."

~ Lady Bird Johnson ~
