'Orientalis'  

A good perennial for cutting, each mounded plant putting up 15-20 slender stems of hot pink lychnis-like flowers in dense clusters. Forms a low leafy clump the first year, followed by a brilliant show in year two. There is mass confusion online and in catalogs over whether this a biennial or perennial, but my favorite old argument solver, Hortus Third, splits that baby by saying, "...biennial, or short-lived perennial." Swallowtail butterflies massed all over them for weeks. Challenging to get a picture that didn't look like a butterfly portrait. Self sows, full sun to part shade, for borders, rock gardens, 6-12" spacing.
