red rose campion

I'm posting here in case any Canadian people might be able to help me, as I can't post on the US exchange page. I'm looking for RED rose campion seeds. I have the fuchsia coloured ones, but I have seen photos of the scarlet version, and they are spectacular in a summer garden, blending well with the yellows and oranges of rudbekias. If anyone can direct me to a seed house that has them, and ships to Canada, or have some seeds to spare for an SASBE, any info most appreciated.

RE: red rose campion

Your picture piqued my interest, and after some prolong web searches, I have to break it to you that this is a sterile hybrid, and there are no seeds available. This is the flower Lynchnis coronia 'Gardner's World' and is illegal to propagate, so you have to buy the plant instead. I've only been able to find sellers based in the UK, but maybe there's some in your area that might carry them. Maybe somebody on Dave's Garden website has them on offer.
