campion is a short-lived perennial or biennial, which means it can live
at least 2 years or longer. Leaves are pointed and opposite of each
other along the stems. Open in the evening but closing by noon, the
flowers are borne in open clusters on the ends of plant stems. The fragrant
flowers have 5 deeply notched, white petals.
White campion is a problem in cultivated fields as well as natural areas.
It is common throughout North America and Europe.
